Lacks a bit of richness in the flavor. Like someone said, not enough fruit upfront.

Mellow wine with medium body. Flavors of dry fruits and flowers. Nice color.

Not a bad value, but won't buy again. Took a second to open up but after some aeration, spiciness mellowed, and Woody aromatics came out. Definitely off balance with too much acidity and tannin, not enough fruit up front.

Great house/table wine. Easy to drink. Medium body, medium/rich mouthfeel. (initial rating 8.6 but after having it again, dropped to 8.0)
