This wine has a “je ne sais quoi” quality to it, mainly because those with whom I tasted it couldn’t put our collective fingers on just exactly what it was that we liked about it – except that we liked it very much. Could it be the black cherry or the sweet red and yellow pepper nose; maybe it was the raspberry, cranberry and dark fruit laden taste. Maybe it was the easy drinking nature of the wine; the smooth spiciness in the mouth, or how it didn’t seem too dry, but definitely not sweet either. Finally, someone put it best by calling it “wonderfully uncomplicated” and pointing out “it’s what people would love in a red wine”. That about summed it up: uncomplicated and delicious, what more do you really need, this, or any, time of year.
