Lots of bright fruit: cherry and kirsch. Nice acids and a wee bit of tannin. Great summer cookout red

Bit grippy on the tannins, dried cherries, rocks, medium acid, slightly unbalanced.

Very interest wine. The nose is chili’s and spice and then the taste is jammy and dark fruits. It’s a fun wine to explore.

Classic, well made Sicilian Nero d’Avola. Cherry predominates.

Good, inexpensive Cerasuolo, pepper, cherry, and acid palette, and a fragrant peppery nose. A little thin but quite a good value.

Smoky, ashy bouquet with caramelized sugar notes. Dried raspberry and potpourri on the palate. But still fruity. Really an enjoyable guzzler. Ideal warm weather red.
