Funky on the nose but easy to drink. A little acidic but is opening up slowly. Lots of cherry on the palate.

Pretty, approachable, lightly-extracted. Showing some CO2 and sweet, candy-like cherry and raspberry fruit. Think Starburst or Skittles.

Loving the youthful exuberance. This wine seizes the day and burns out in a brilliant blaze, completely unaware of tomorrow.

Cherry and blackberry Sicilian burst. Layers of fruit all around. Nothing like Sicily in the summer.

Beautiful red color. Bold flavors with subtle tannins. Lots of fruit notes (cherry, blackberries) and slightly drier than I was expecting for the variation (thank god!). It is very drinkable, a good substitute for Pinot Noir or Malbec. Approachable for beginning drinkers who can’t tolerate full-bodies Cabs or Merlots yet. I sense it will be delicious with steak!
