Soft,
Right from the nose you knows, it’s a soft wine: not quite hotel, yet manipulated enough away from its terroir. Grape, (Ha!) small vanillin tannins mingled with jammy fruits.

Love it! Decent oak and vanilla with fruity dark berries and leather on the nose. Very drinkable with good mouthfeel and tannins. Medium body

Fruity, juicy, easy drinking. A touch of tobacco, and spices cherry candy. But there's really nothing much going on. At least what's going on is tasty.
