Tasting Notes

The style here tends to be on the more juicy and snappy side of the variety. This is a perfect by the glass selection or weeknight wine for savvy wine drinkers customers looking for an easy drinking red wine that’s a delicious and quaffable, but full of character. Perfect with pizza or roast chicken, this has “Tuesday night wine” written all over it.  “I don’t know how these people do it, but the quality of this ostensibly simple wine has long been consistently excellent.” writes David Schildknecht.
