This is an easy drinking wine. The tannin's are very smooth. The nose was filled with berries. Through the evening, the wine did not open up much more then when I first opened it so need to decant. I am giving this an 89 only because it was not as complexed as I would have liked, but it is still a solid wine. Great for under $20
