We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The color is intense and always very young. At first, the aroma arrives over one period of rather serious closing. In the mouth there is a great general presence without being easy to define in the details; it is a little austere and tannins are rather serious. Balance will return later, the minerality is the guaranteeing one. Drink now through 2012.
