Cherry aromas. Fairly simple. Strong tannins that create a substantially dry, astringent, mouth-puckering finish... A bit too much for my taste. Probably better with food than for sipping. 12.5% Alc.

It opens with a burst of tart cherry, but then...more tart cherry carries through the mid-palate. But the finish...oh the finish is really where the tart cherry comes into play. A one trick pony, ruby and fruity.

Rating according to the price; one of my favorites in the under $10 range.

Enjoying a very solid Chianti here on 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen at the restaurant Ambasciata with Alma.

Only $30 US Dollars but very good. Would recomend if you can find it.

Acidity wasn't where I'd like it to be.
