Easy and open, with ample berry fruit on the casual nose. Cherry and red plum flavors run a touch sour, but at least it isn’t overly sweet and manufactured. A warm, spicy finish is a touch rough, but overall the wine is solid.
Big and fruity, with sugary cherry fruit and a big, aggressive finish. The acidity here is abrasive as it sears your tongue. In the end, you almost feel a shock as you drink this overdone wine that tastes more like a powdered fruit drink than fine wine.
