I had the 2013 before, and thought it was good value. I enjoyed this one too, and it's still a good value, fruit is cherry and black cherry, with vanilla and wood, some earth, and a hint of cola. Acidity is moderate, and tannins are low to moderate. Good table wine.

Smooth and earthy. A great wine on it's own or accompanying dinner.

Nose is light fruit, clean. Taste is berry, fruits, with a bit of spice finish. Very moderate tannis, easy to drink.

Great wine. A bit astringent which probably implies tannins. Also heavy mouth feel.

Light fruity nose. A bit of oil after it warms. Wants to be something but falls short. Acidic aftertaste. Improves as it warms a bit. Don't drink cold.
