With some weight, this is a smooth red-fruited wine with just a hint of bananas. The balance works well, marrying acidity and light tannins. Fruity and attractive.— R.V.
A well-made, tightly structured wine emphasizing tannins and berry fruits. It would almost be worth aging, with its weight and dry texture. The fruit is solid and firm.— R.V.
A rich style, with ripe black fruits, touches of fig and firm tannins. For a Villages, this is powerful and dense, with ripe, warm licorice. Acidity comes through finally, giving a lift of freshness but not taking away from the richness.— R.V.
Red cherry fruit comes laced with light tannins, giving this bright wine an open, juicy character.— R.V.
The wine is firm with some solid tannins as well as bright cherry fruit and good acidity. A cool, mineral character keeps it fresh. With a fruity aftertaste, it’s ready to drink.— R.V.
The wine is full of ripe bananas as well as cherry flavors, very much in the style of a nouveau. It’s soft and rounded, with plenty of fruitiness as well as soft tannins. The wine is ready to drink now.— R.V.
