Lighter and fruitier than I would have expected. A bit of a perfume that seems out of place. Seems odd for a 2014...

This reminds me of a date I went on once where the girl was pretty but couldn’t add much to the conversation and the night got boring quickly. Check please!

Definitely lighter than expected, but still enjoyable and very good for the price.

Pleasant but light on the finish. Doesn’t stand up to pasta well but enjoyable as a stand alone

Pleasant not stellar, somewhat lighter than typical Classico, nice astringency, good value

Found this treat at the Food Lion for a great price in an emergency, of all places. I can tell you from experience that the winemaker is incredible and the location is surreal and legit. The nose is fuller than the body, but that probably applies to me as well.
