It is quite tangy (on the first sip). That is the tannin. Tannin is a trademark of red wines in general, & Beaujolais Nouveau in particular. So, that is not a bad thing. I could smell the tanginess in the bouquet. I like the bite of tannin, so this was a PLUS in my book.
Robust, deep & TAUT giving it a mature feel. Yes, there is a nice, lingering berry-flavored aftertaste. All good. Of course, it is a full-bodied wine. A deep red.
If you like reds you will relish this. Easy to like.
It is NOT a sweet, light — flippant — wine. It is NOT meant to be.
I think it is a winner. I will drink all 4 bottles of my current batch with pleasure. I most likely will buy a few more.
I got to the Rochester (NH) Liquor Store just after 1pm. From what I could see only two bottles had been sold. This years price is $12.99. WOW. Up $2 from last year. It wasn’t that long ago that it was $7.99. SMILE. C’est la vie.
It is worth $12.99. SMILE.
