Deep ruby/purple in color. Bright. The nose is dusty and slightly horsey with red berries. On the palate, plums and cherries. Still a lot of tannins. This wine could pass for Clos de la Roilette, one of the better Beaujolais producers. Whether it improves in the cellar is a question, but it is drinking quite well right now. Would work with a lot of foods including heartier fare as well. $17.
Wow, is this good. $30 retail and a great value at that price. Ruby in color with some purple swirls. The nose has sour cherries, cherries, anise, slight spice. On the palate, this has a wonderful texture. Medium bodied but lush. Great acidity. Juicy black cherry fruit. Deep and some complexity. Light tannins. Great with food. It is delicious.
