This is your cheap summer party/cookout wine for 2008. Tremendous value in a crowd-pleasing style.
Eye: Dark crystalline ruby.
Nose: Ripe fruity scents of hard chery candy and a bit of a minerally backdrop.
Mouth: Ripe, soft, and with beautiful balance, this wines has lots of straightforward cherry, grapey fruit with a touch of stones in the background. Not complex, but very fun to drink, particularly with a slight chill on it.
Cellar or drink? Drink over the next few months.
Price/store: Was $8 and change at Spec's on Holcombe.
