Matured 18 months in Portuguese oak, this is a light wine that is made to be a bargain but offers a lot more than that. Cinnamon, red berries and a kiss of wood frame this Beaujolais-type wine that is reminiscent of light Pinot Noir. Will take well to a chill and will augment burgers or sausage off the grill. Better than previous efforts and extremely nice for this incredible price. Best Buy.
