Lots of pleasure here! A bargain. Straightforward with just enough complexity to be really interesting. #wine

A slight hint of corkiness blows off in seconds leaving blackberry jam and then a whiff of stony minerals. On the tongue, an earth or leather character appears and is framed by grippy soft tannins.

Light and lacks flavor and aroma. Pleasant and ok for the price point. But there are more interesting wines for this price.

Disappointing. Fruity. But not very tasty. Just kind of broad and not very interesting.
