-- I have adjusted my scale since my last review! -- This wine has a nice young color that is worth 2 of 2, but there is nothing in the bouquet. Perhaps over-filtered? (2 of 4) The taste is Too dry and tart for my liking, and not enough body to blend well with the tannins. I think 11% Cabernet Franc was too much. As a result, not a terribly well balanced wine. Even lots of time to breathe didn't sort this one out. Not one I'd care to buy again. (2 of 10). Overall, Too dry, too thin, too flat, too short, which is too bad. (1 of 4) TOTAL: 7 of 20
Color:From the moment you pour, this wine looks young. Very bright purple. I was expecting something deeper (2 of 3). Smell: The nose is pretty thin for such a well-rated wine. Certainly not promising. I don't expect much from the wine after smelling it (2 of 4). Taste: The bouquet does not mislead! The wine is indeed thin and un-remarkable, though not distasteful. Tastes over-filtered, and has a short finish (what is there is well blended though) (3 of 8). Overall: It's just okay. (2 of 5) Total Score: 9 out of 20.
