This is a rather dilute, light, almost invisible wine from Jones. The fruit tastes watered down, with a slightly candied sweetness. Tannins are thin and the wine simply lacks concentration from start to finish. The best part of it is the nose, with some pretty, lightly fruity scents of raspberry and cherry.
