Even the entry level wine is exciting. Brilliant fruit and pungent volcanic terroir.

Rush of raspberry pastille, cherry and dried herb aromas, palate is all about bright, tart red fruit with just a touch of pleasing bitter tea leaf and tannin on the finish. The epitome of a food wine and tremendous value

Much softer and sweeter than previous vintages. Cranberry and herbs with some firm tannin structure.

Tons of wild red berries, strawberry milk candy, hint of herbs. So clean, refreshing and juicy on the palate. Beautiful acidity. Not a complex wine but a pleasure indeed.

Nose: cranberry, dried strawberry, red plum, red cherry, rose, bay leaf, and Ise, slight coffee, bittersweet chocolate, leather figs.
Taste: similar to what was in the nose, medium plus tannin Pinot Noir is my thought. Really like this wine and again at $20 a bargain.

Fruit forward, bright, higher tannin for my liking. Still enjoyable!

reserved nose of cherry w wild strawberry & raspberry patch, bordering eucalyptus yet also w brown sugar ~ juicy acid enlivens the pop of fruit on the palate which transitions into a finish of graphite and volcanic ash
