Community Tasting Note

  • TXRDW wrote: 94 points

    August 11, 2019 - Seems to be in a good drinking window. PnP at a restaurant and the bottle was ready to go, but it did improve over the next hour. Fresh red fruit, balanced, but a little light on the tannins. Not sure how much the Fortuna will improve over time, if at all. Definitely a great QPR wine.
