Tank-aged (not a stick of wood anywhere!), this is a fresh, vibrant red with lots of ripe fruit and decent structure. Aromatically, just a shade closed at the moment, so a year more in bottle wouldn't hurt, but delicious drinking now as well. Outstanding value at $15. My, how I wish more wines in this price range were this good!
Deep ruby in colour with a pinkish rim. Youthful nose of black and blueberry, hint of violets and oak. The midweight palate is tart and has smooth tannins. Flavours of sour cherry, blackberry. Medium length. Feb 2011.
