The nose is dominated by dark toast, with black cherries and florals chiming in. This medium bodied wine is dry, a bit lean, with good complimentary acids and a Bordeaux-like attitude. The taste of tart black cherries is enhanced by spice and herbal notes, and the finish lingers nicely on the palate. A good food wine that was in harmony with a grilled Porterhouse.
Wine Spectator gives this wine an 84. I liked it better. For $14, and my score of 88, a great QPR food wine I will continue to seek out.
