On the hunt for a table wine to serve to at a party of pretentious seniors with undiscriminating pallets. This bottle gets high marks for it's seemingly respectable label design. It's not thin either, but the green/stemmy taste never abates.

Structurally, the wine has potential. Medium-bodied with good balance between tannic structure and acidity. Seemingly a perfect match with meaty dishes. But alas, the bottle is somewhat bereft of fruit; bits of cherry, currant, and dark berry, but dominated by sage and the bitter taste of stems (as indicated by another reviewer). Make sure that this one is served at room temperature, and it might be better with bread and creamier cheeses.

Smoky, citrus, rich. Lovely depth, pairs well with blueberries and chocolate.

Härlig, välbalanserad, rund, karraktärs fylld..om jag ska önska ngt så lite mer tanniner och mer längd i vinet, men skulle nog öppnat flaskan ngt år tidigare!
