This nicely aromatic, medium bodied wine has FRUITY to integrated notes of red currant, prune and Earth. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 min) and the finish is medium. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 88 pts. I would not recommend this one as for a dollar more, there are far more superior wines that I can recommend. It should cost no more than $10 to $11. Tasted July/10.
