If ever there was a fun red wine, this is it. To me it was very sweet, and also light and very playful. At the price we bought it, it is the kind of wine we would put out in the garden for a summer garden party or picnic.
My first verdict was “alcoholic grape juice”, but actually this wine grew on me, and I found I was enjoying it more with each glass. I do not think it is a winter wine at all. To me it is pure summer – red fruits – especially raspberries popped out at me.
Don’t tell anyone how much I enjoyed it, but yes, this definitely has my vote for a fun summer wine. If you are invited to one of our summer garden parties, expect to see a few bottles gracing the table.
