Must cellar nose, opens after while to expose more acid laden fruit.
Sharp fruits and high acidity.
Needs a bit more time to mellow..

Purchased this bottle for under $15, and after tasting it I returned and purchased the rest that were on the shelves. It has strong tannins on the nose, but hardly any on the tongue. A beautiful wine - wish the store had more!

Loved the fruitiness of this bottle. Light on the tannins, which I prefer. Went well with spicy food.

Light tannins and fruit up front. Slow lingering finish. Light acidity. The fruit is a little syrupy. Opens up after decanting. Might get more depth and subtly with aging. Delightful nose.

It's a 2015. It's pretty solid and grows on you. Let it open up or decant for awhile.

High acidity, smokiness, some tannins. Also some oak. Nice.

Very good value. Smooth at open and gets slightly tannic on the finish. Great every day type wine at this price.
