He said: Opened 30-minutes before drinking. Clear, light ruby red color. Red fruit aroma. Strong, juicy red fruit taste with lots of flavor that continues through a medium-length finish with hints of damp earth at the end. The words “Fresh”, “Bright” and “Yummy” come to mind when you taste this delicious red. Very nice California wine and at under $20 it’s a good buy and a wonderful summer-time red. We had tasted this before buying it and liked it very much, but I think it was better with the grilled pork.
She said: As California wine drinker three to four months of the year I love full bodied flavor filled wines and this wine won’t disappoint. With lots of aroma and fragrance the wine has medium body, low tannins and a tasty finish. It might be a bit fruity compared to European wines but less so than other California wines. A good buy at $17.
