“Eye: Clear, medium dark red color with bluish edge. Nose: Ripe and full on the nose, deep red fruit with some spicy herbal notes. Mouth: Luscious and ripe, full bodied. No real vanilla notes, but obvious use of oak.
“Eye: Deep yellow in color. Nose: Rich, not oaky but a very rich nose. Mouth: Again, not buttery but definitely rich and full bodied, implies a buttery character... Retains good acidity. Nice replacement for a full bodied Chardonnay, and what a beautiful color!”
