Nice nose of raspberry and light earth. Feels lightweight on the palate, however. The fruit is there and pleasant enough, with notes of allspice and light currants, and the finish is nice, it’s kind of all dressed up with nowhere exciting to go. Try with lamb kebabs. A nice enough wine, but for the price, this wine is not recommended.
