Decent Chianti stand-in. Air was kind.

This is not great wine. But it is perfectly lovely and palate refreshing with a light chill alongside a burger. And somehow it made it to my table from halfway around the world, through an importer and three tiers of distribution, for under $10. I live in CA. Why can't I get a bottle like this DTC for $5 or $6? Property costs that haven't been absorbed by generations? Fruit that would go into this sort of bottle being purchased by the big boys (Bronco, Constellation) and made into Menage a Trois? It's not like there aren't bulk producers in Italy or multi-generation growers in the U.S. I don't get it. [Sorry for the rant ]

dried cherry, hinting at floral- subtle. bright, light, crisp. Sounds like im@describing a white wine! would rock with salmon.

Sharp bouquet like cheddar made at a tannery.

My cousin picked up this bottle for his date night, but they weren’t big wine drinkers and, let’s just say, they opted for gin and tonics instead.

He gave me the bottle and here we are. Suffice it to say, this was not my selection.

Little too tannic, dry, and peppery. Not the choicest body or complexity.

It’s fine.

Less than $20 from Bales. Not bad for the price. Somewhat lacking in flavor. Smooth. You
