Medium ruby,
medium aromas simple red fruit (raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant and cranberry) and hints of spice (pepper, cinnamon)
on the palate dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, medium tannins, medium body, medium(-) finish

good. the aromas and flavours are all primary and only of tart red fruit, there is little complexity of aromas. On the palate the wine is tart with high acidity and a lack of rich fruit or sweetness to balance that acidity. The finish leaves sensations of acidity and alcohol. The wine seems simple.

The wine is suitable for bottle ageing. acidity+chewy tannins and medium alcohol and medium color good color extraction and therefore maceration of the

Violets, cherry, underbrush, subtle and elegant with light body and nice acidity. Great Bourgogne.

Cherry nose, with fennel and slate. Light and creamy, and dances on the tongue. Smooth tannins and long cherry finish. Very nice for $15!

Hints of vanilla and baking spices on the nose. A nice medium bodied wine, not super complex, but very quaffable and easy to drink.
