A lush scent of fresh Bing cherries greets you from the moment the cork is pulled, afterward, this lovely, textured wine continues to open up beautifully in the glass. Fine grip and body, it's plump, fresh fruit is artfully balanced against acid and oak. Smooth, youthful and inviting, this isn't a huge wine, just hugely enjoyable.
