Light ruby in color with a reddish rim and light intensity.

Light bodied and soft with medium acidity.

Nice fruity nose with cherries, violets, strawberries, red candy, light spices and white pepper.

Fruity on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, cherries, spices and peppercorn.

Medium finish with medium minus tannins and tart cherries.

A nice table wine from California.
Drinking nicely now, and it won't last long, so drink it while fresh.

Good right out of the bottle, simple and lightweight, and not offensive at all. Drinks more like juice. Probably has some residual sugar.

13% alcohol by volume.
