Wonderful nose, full fruit and wood tones. This opened up fairly quickly; juicy on the palate, balanced and layered. It drinks like a wine at twice the price until the finish - which unfortunately its a bit tart. Still - for $17 this is a great value. (although I notice wine.com bumped the price to $20 since my first purchse -- still a good value though).
Very good. You can never go wrong with a BV. Could not be beat at the wine.com price $18.
My wife and I both enjoyed this wine. I believe it will only get better with cellaring.
