This easygoing red offers subdued scents of woodland berry, blue flower and a whiff of moist earth. The straightforward, enjoyable palate doles out tart cherry and a hint of baking spice alongside soft flexible tannins and bright acidity. Drink soon.
Unacceptable - barely drinkable, reasonable start but the finish does not work.
