Surprisingly complex wine for the money. Nose of smoked meat, broth, tea, stewed raspberries and black cherry with the palate following suit. Juicy and ripe with black tea, smoke, damp leaves, stewed raspberries and black cherry with just a touch of salinity in the finish. The only thing this is really missing is depth of texture and length but for $17... Excellent.

Funky fresh. Light underripe red fruit a bit of funk barnyard on nose. Medium plus acidity. Perfect easy drinking.

Nice entry level Arbois rouge. Simple, but full of mineral. Light bodied, bright and easy to get to know. A tasty, geeky wine for $20

Not particularly complex but for the price it was very nice. Burgundy styled bottle that is a great value at $14. It did get nicer as it opened up but never developed depth or a longer finish.

Light yet flavorful, quaffable. Happy wine.

Took 3 days of sitting on the counter uncorked to open and show its stuff. Nice bright cherry - mineral balance. As expected light on its feet, but rather sumptuous and long-finishing for an Arbois. I think a handful of years will really allow this wine to show real character.
