This is always such a fresh, light, juicy and almost joyous red with fragrant, floral wild rose, berry/plum fruit and some fresh dug earthy character. It's quite delicate, fruity and fresh on the palate, with excellent length. So juicy. Not a traditional 90 point red structurally, but there is no denying its vivacious charm. Score: 90 (David Lawrason, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)

This isn't a showstopper, but there's true beauty in the freshness of this wine. Incredibly aromatic with intense cherry and raspberry notes along with a bit of earthiness to add some complexity. Light-bodied, it's very juicy with refreshing acidity and a long finish. Figured this would be something nice and simple to pair with pizza, but this is the best damn pizza wine I've had in a long time!! Seriously enjoyable and an amazing value. Definitely buying more! Tasted March 2013.

David is right on. The main taste for me is cherries, and it is quite smooth with a decent finish. It starts well and grows with each glass. I can't quite give it a 90, but it is very good especially for the price. I will buy more of this one.
