One of the reasons Thud likes this wine is in some part due to a tiny bit of secondary fermentation in the wine. And this particular bottle did not disappoint Thud, or me for that matter, as there was indeed a little effervescence in the wine. Quite appealing, and more than a little fun.
This deep ruby hued wine had a wonderful nose of cherries and herbs. With a mixed red berry compote vibe on the palate and tannins that were softer than expected, the bottle didn't last long (between four people), as it paired well with the pasta dish Thud had prepared for dinner. A very nice tipple with which to end my wine-drought.
