Decadent flavor? I thought it was a little muted, but a solid wine with light undertones of spice and fruit

Had with dinner and enjoyed! Not too strong. Would buy again for a basic red.

Delicate acidity/simple tasting. Not much depth to the flavors but it is ok. You can taste hints of vanilla and fruit but not much.

A great wine, pairs well with light Italian food, great pepper flavor- but overall very balanced. I would recommend this as a great dinner wine.

Light summer fruit with a slight heaviness and savor, like watermelon with pepper. Nice yet intense tannins. A bit watery in the end palate. This is the second wine I've had from this winemaker and I think they are my new favorite.

Hint of sweet at first and a very poor mouth feel due to the watery texture I presume. However this went well with chipotle and after a long car ride from Missouri to fight off dvts! Plus I do appreciate the bitter vinegar like taste at the end because it reminds me of the wine I make.
