The Perrin family makes a lot of wine and most of its is great to very good. This is a solid wine for the price. Problem for me is, most of their wines lack a certain depth of character. Meaning, rarely do they have that next level, outside of the highest end wines they make. Maybe I'm over critical.

Spicy but smooth. Sweetness from the warm weather. This is soft spice from the fruit. Paired with goose stuffed with burn grass and xo scallop sauce jelly
