He said: Very dark ruby red color. Damp earth and strong raspberry aromas. Heavy, abundant fruit flavors and a dry, smooth, medium finish that has just a touch of mineral. WOW, for the price this is an outstanding buy for a Beaujolais. For me it lacked some of the complexity and wonderful balance I have come to enjoy in Beaujolais; however, it’s cheap, full of flavor and VERY drinkable Beaujolais…and that says it all!!!
She said: I generally don’t flavor Beaujolais because they are so light but this one is an exception. It has plenty of body and flavor. Too bad we are not eating a hearty meal or at least something tasty.
