Bright cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes greet the nose, along with fresh rose petals, baking spices and hints of earth. Bright acidity on the entrance combines with the showy red fruit and flavors of forest floor, rhubarb, sage and toast on the palate. Round, supple tannins provide an exceptionally good transition to the finish, with structured tannins providing nice body and length.
A classy package adorns this affordable wine. Cranberry and black cherry fruit come to a solid, focused core, with stiff acidity backing substantial yet smooth tannins. Editors’ Choice.
