A notch or two below the Kistler. Harmless but uninspiring.

Tastefully hedonistic. An array of red fruits (cranberry, raspberry, sour cherry), minty herbs, baking spices - but all classy, not extravagant. Light to medium bodied, with just a bit of earthy tannin, overall silky and well-proportioned. A good village-level wine.
