Bar Harbor. A French tasting Rioja with a nice fruit and smoke balance; dry side. Had with paella. Delicious.

Estoy enamorado! I’m in Love! The Fruit jumps out of the bottle on the nose reminding me of a Strawberry Jolly Rancher. This wine takes the best of the best. It’s got a body like a French Pinot, the fruit forwardness of a Merlot, and grabs the Oak like a Cabernet and It finishes like a Beaujolais. Red Cherry, Strawberry and Oak run neck and neck from the start to the checkered flag! And for less than $23. What!?! A Winner!

Ok. Not much on the nose, medium to low finish, and something I would classify as a modest table wine.
