Ready to go, this is lush without being overly sweet; expressive with intriguing aromas evolving each time you take another sip. Certainly different from the mainstream, enjoyable, good value.

This medium bodied, fruity wine has aromas of cherry, prune and strawberry. It has a medium finish and subtle tannins (decant for 30 min). My impression: NICE. Tasted Jan/10.
