Fruity & Smooth
Outstanding for its price. Lots of fruit, dark cherry with a fruity nose. Soft tannins but with soft tannins. Wonderful red/purple grape color. I wouldn't say it's bold, but it is a big yet smooth fruity wine. A fully satisfying red wine.
Smooth & Supple
Nice wine but needs a little more time in bottle. When I first opened it nose was huge with fresh red berries but not much flavor, shut down. With time (several hours) it came alive with strawberry, rasberry and sweet tobacco flavors. Tannis are prominent but soft and smooth. Finish has some licorice but is a little abbreviated. Still a little rough around the edges.
