I had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, the wine did not deliver. A rather simple and straight-forward wine that shows rusticity, dark cherry and plum fruit, and nothing much else I find interesting. It lacks some intensity of flavor and feels just a little hollow on the mid-palate. Finish is fine, but not exciting. At $30, I expect wine to deliver more complexity and more of a sense of place / typicity.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
