September 30, 2011 - I was very pleasantly surprised with this wine. Popped it and poured a bit off the top and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Not a huge nose to it at all but nice all the same. The taste was very silky in texture. Very nice going down with some definite red fruit vibe. Moderate tannins that didn't detract from the flavor at all. Picked this up for around $38 and I'll definitely buy again.
