Drank 6/5/19. Very nice with Rigatoni Bolognese.

Scents of red cherry, leather, and a hint of earth. Bright red fruit flavors of red cherry and strawberry, backed by medium tannins. A touch of spice on the medium, red fruit filled finish.

Very nice for the price (around $15 at Costco).

3/22/8/4/3 +50 =90 pts.

Ripe fruit. Bright and easy. A bit of effervescence.

Better with a little air. Aromas of beef jerky sticks, plum, and sour blackcherry. Almost a little over powering with acidity on the palate, which mellows with food. Paired with smoked pulled pork. Bright, slightly underripe blackberry and cherry fruit. Acid brings length to the finish which does round out.
