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.
Light and gently tangy, the hay, herb, and melon notes predominating here make this a softly straightforward wine. Decidedly not in the extreme style, this has easy drinking appeal, closing with gentle spice and grapefruit tones.
This wine has plenty of flavor, from mulberry to cherry cola to spice, as well as high acidity and hints of minerality. The nose offers red berry and rhubarb. All in all it’s good, but it would be better if it were more integrated.
Oak asserts itself on the nose with aromas of caramel and walnut. The age is also apparent, as this wine lacks the zippy feel of similarly priced 2005s. But it’s a good wine, nicely balanced with acidity, a rounded body and oaked flavors of caramel, nut and spice. You just wish there were a little more fruit.
