This is probably the cheap wine value of 2012. I like it even better than its more expensive, older sibling, which I reviewed a couple of weeks ago. This is akin to a balanced, soft, deep, very drinkable non-oaky Cabernet from California (or a newer style Bordeaux).
Deep, intensely red ruby color. Deep and pure on the nose, with very ripe, rich cherry/berry fruit, augmented with very subtle smoky gravelly quality. Ripe, pure, soft and intense on the attack, with excellent balance, and good cling. This would pair well with lots of foods, and is also really nice on its own. A-. This was ... wait for it ... $9.99 from WTSO.com. If and when they list it again, get some. Imported by Classic Wines, Stamford, CT.
