Nice cherries in the aromas. Tad thin in the mouth with very aggressive tannins.

Dark red cherry, light-medium weight, maybe needs a year or two but pretty enjoyable.

Enjoyable but priced $15 too steep. At $45 we need deeper complexity and this is delicate but not inspiring.

The nose is soft. Raspberry and candied cherry. The palette is salty and lean - sandy, loamy, lucid.

There’s skill here in the interplay but you’d be nearly as well off with SP68.

Gushing with red fruit juices and a nice backbone or herbs. Refreshing, elegant, and exuberant flavor!

Fresh red cherry and red raspberry fruits on the nose and palate, with a distinct bramble / herbaceous note that adds interest. Clean, focused, and pure. Smooth medium to lighter bodied wine with medium plus acidity. Suspect this has potential to improve with age, but it’s so delicious now, I wouldn’t know.

Amazingly fresh, yet the fruit is fresh and forward, like fresh strawberries on the very beginning, raspberries, plums and ripe red fruits all over, with a crisp minerality and a medium acidity, with a light-medium body with slightly mouth drying tannins. It’s just volcanic and tastey and a great buy.

Wonderfully layered and richly textured frappato.
