Loving the youthful exuberance. This wine seizes the day and burns out in a brilliant blaze, completely unaware of tomorrow.

Pretty, approachable, lightly-extracted. Showing some CO2 and sweet, candy-like cherry and raspberry fruit. Think Starburst or Skittles.

Beautiful red color. Bold flavors with subtle tannins. Lots of fruit notes (cherry, blackberries) and slightly drier than I was expecting for the variation (thank god!). It is very drinkable, a good substitute for Pinot Noir or Malbec. Approachable for beginning drinkers who can’t tolerate full-bodies Cabs or Merlots yet. I sense it will be delicious with steak!

This is so great to drink after it’s had a chance to breathe for a bit. A little fruity and pairs well with pasta...it isn’t too heavy. Just right for the summer. I was actually surprised.
