Vanilla and berries nose. Medium bodied and fruity, with Berry and cacao notes, but not sweet.

Smooth, easy drinking wine, right after opening. No front bite nor back aftertaste. Be patient and it gets better.

Much, much better the second day. Floral aromas with undertones of blackberries and a touch of cedar. Big ripe fruits on the palate. Cherries, plums, chocolate, and more oak. Nice fruity finish and just a dash of complexity with the minerality. Very French but alas, the French do this better.

Who would have thought... some California kids in DC purchasing a bottle of Napa wine? A light red wine; a tasty table wine

It was different and unique, a little too fruity up front and tartness lingered. not really my style.
