Often simple is good. I know, complexity is shown in quality wines but really, what are you looking for in a $12 bottle of wine.

Simple is good in this case.

The wine shows good concentration with perhaps just a little fading near the rim. Could be that 13% alcohol displaying itself.

Nose is quite assertive. I could smell the plum fruit from a distance and without sniffing inside my glass.

Taste is simple, it’s plum, and not much more. It is fruit forward and easy to drink.

Pelle Island Winery has been on a roll …. I realy like what they have been producing over the past year or so. This new “Lighthouse” brand is a success. The price is right and the wine is good.
