Pleasant and clean, an easy sipper with berry and cherry flavors and hints of thyme and sweet tobacco. Although it’s light in body and texture, there’s a real persistence of ripe fruit through the finish.
Simple and inoffensive, offering up pleasant peach and apple flavors backed up with decent acids. Even tastes like there’s a little oak around the edges. Recognizably Chard-like, at an everyday price.
Shows proper Cabernet character, namely a full-bodied dry wine with blackcurrant and chocolate flavors framed in oak. No special problems or flaws, but correctly made, and not bad for this price.
This wine is fresh and clean, with bright acids that cleanse the palate. It’s not especially powerful in fruit, with suggestions of citrus, apple and peach, and snaps to an abrupt finish.
This is a sound Pinot Noir that’s common but varietally correct. Silky in texture, it’s dry and crisp with acidity, accented with pink bubblegum, raspberry-pie filling and spice flavors.
