I have found this wine to be an excellent choice to serve red wine drinkers that do not have the palate to appreciate the nuances of really fine reds. Call me cheap, but to open a $100 or more bottle of a fine wine and serve it to someone who has no appreciation of it would be a waste.
Smooth & Supple
This wine was medium bodied to me, flexible in its appeal (black cherry, slight smokiness), and for the price an excellent value. I would buy more for a dinner party or large group....but i would not necessarily purchase it as an everyday drinking wine as it lacked depth to me.
Light & Crisp
THIS BOTTLE DID NOT MEET MY EXPECTATIONS. I FOUND IT THIN IN TEXTURE AND BORING AT SMELL AND TASTE WAS PLAIN OR SHOULD I SAY TO LIGHT TO ENHANCE ONE PALATE.
