Ive been drinking wine for about 4 or 5 years, and this wine is special. This wine is very Mellow, and seems fully matured. Tannins complement flavor perfectly, and the fruit (I remeber a bit of citrus) mixes with the earth tones to make a smooth blend. Really great. I've never been good at describing subtle notes of flavor, but if you are a wine snob this is one you have to review. buy at least 2 bottles, after one you will want another on reserve. I enjoyed this /w Salmon broiled and served on a bed of asparagus and mashed potatoes. I first began drinking it with a great spinach salad with light mango dressing, walnuts, and dried cherries. I can honestly say this was THE BEST combination of foods ive eaten in at least a year.
