Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas, citrus and earthy floral notes. On the palate raspberry and cherry flavors with nutty toasty spice notes. Tannins are rustic and firm, medium finish ending with savory earthy character. Drink now, no aging benefit.

Sweet, smooth, floral, great undertones, and perfect amount of dryness.

Totally agree with the above description as “velvety”. This is a plush, medium bodied wine; think dark red berries and beefsteak tomatoes charring in a clay pot. Is anyone else getting almond on the finish?

Supple and velvety. This is a good value for a Reserva. Proves that this vineyard is capable of making more than just great Pinot Grigio.
