I found this wine to be harsh with an acidic after taste. This wine must be paired with pizza or spaghetti to be more tolerable.
I poured this wine today for myself and my entire harvest crew for lunch. It was well received- a true food wine. Good acid that can hold up well to most foods. Not flawed in any way. Bright cherry notes. Clean. Well-made with good fruit typicity. It is a lighter style, with red fruit and cranberry notes. I would think of this wine as a cheaper substitute for Pinot noir in most pairings.
Somewhat bitter for my liking.
I found this wine bitter and astringent. Not pleasing. Delas provides a MUCH better experience in a low price Cotes du Rhone
This wine drinks like a finely aged cab in the $50-$100 range. I would prefer this over Silver Oak Napa or Twomey any day. Killer price point.
Excellent, well rounded, full bodied, and smooth. Let it breathe for 20 min.
A very satisfying wine, benefits from a bit of time to breathe and complements red meats nicely. Relatively dry with a nice balance of fruit, tannins, and a hint of bitterness. This is hard to beat at this price.
For the price, this is a wonderful everyday wine. easy on the palate with nice fruit flavors and and a smooth finish. I plan to serve it as an option at Christmas dinner.
Berries and plum. Let it breathe. Great value wine. Would recommend and buy again.
Light-bodied and acidic, with a cider-like aftertaste, the bottle might taste better with another year as the tannins help it mellow out some so you can taste the flavors more.
