Community Tasting Note

  • wine4me2 Likes this wine: 89 points

    December 28, 2015 - Initially I really liked this wine. It has great color, bouquet, nice legs and plenty of ripe berry fruit forward. However, after drinking a second glass I realized it is a little too sweet and jammy and lacks any substantial tannins. In short, a new world wine that lacks some stuffing. This wine was made for immediate drinking and will not age so dont wait to drink-up. I like the richness but maybe only a glass at a time. I think a little too much merlot in this blend for me but some may love it to push its score into the 90's. I love their fruit and will try their Signature Cabernet selection that may suit me better.
