Pairs well with every entree. Fish to steak. Alfredo to pesto to marinera. Perfect acidity. This is the crap shot wine. Cheers!

Starts juicy, but not sweet, and finishes nice and dry. Not very complex, easy to drink.

Easy to drink, not too complex, but nice and dry. Smells a bit like leather before opening up. Finishes nice and jammy but with very little sweetness. Equally as perfect with a baguette & butter or grilled meat. Drinking it on a fairly unseasonably warm day, which tells me it’s not too heavy-bodied. Sitting on my patio with a baguette, listening to the cardinals and wrens chat. Perfect Spring day.

Decent restaurant buy for the price point. Went well with our pasta dinner and pizza. More full bodied than most Italian imports at that restaurant. Better with food but decent without. After having it open for awhile, almost smelled like a chocolate covered fig.

Delicious recommendation from Cindy @Annie’s. 2015 for $26.99. Mike and I both really enjoyed this one.

Delicious and smooth, opened up nicely. Tannins and acidity has softened and lovely soft oak and fruit coming through.
