The wine has a nice acidity and the alcohol is in balance, though. The finish is just long enough that it leaves you wanting another sip.
Un vin très tannique, beaucoup de petits fruits sauvages qui s'apprête bien avec des viandes plus exotiques, comme de l'agneau. Un assemblage très bien réussi de la part des Californiens.
different. fruity, some astringency, some complexity. interesting effect overall. fair price.
light, subtle herb nose; subtle but complex pineapple dominating some herb and mineral
drinkable, bright fruit (cherry), not worth the $$
good but not as complex as I'd like.
