Light bodied, red fruited, a little grapey in a pleasant way. Has the characteristic Occhipinti length and touch of black olive. Nice easy sipper.

I have been enjoying the ‘13 vintage for at least a couple summers now. Not currently right out of the bottle for me. Let it rest for several hours in the bottle and it came out of hibernation. Saved half in the fridge overnight and was superb the next day enjoyed below 50 degrees. enjoyed with olives cheese and salami.

Bright and fresh with medium body. Floral notes on the nose with some earthiness on the palate. This wine is light on its feet and a good food wine.

I love the general theme of the wine (light, juicy, and long) but this had a reductive quality that took away from its performance tonight

Dehydrated cherry. Luscious tart. Where have YOU been all my life. I am buying the rest of these from the market well worth the 29.99!
