This is rather appealing for such a simple, soundly balanced package. Dried tarragon, poppy seed, lemon and toast please the senses. Easy to drink, and even easier to buy. Best Buy. —K.F.
A light barnyard note is accompanied by grilled meat, red plum and tobacco that carries to the palate. The acidity is somewhat spritzy and the tannins are sheer, so this is very juicy and suited to everyday fare.
This medium-weight wine is well balanced and accessible. A whiff of rhubarb and gum rubber blows away to make way for flavorful red plum, grilled meat dashed with pepper and a hint of herbs.
