Another one from the Vinexx portfolio tasting. Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some lovely red berries. This is a nice fruit forward wine. On the finish the wine has some lovely smooth tannins and nice dryness. It builds nicely in the mouth. I quite enjoyed this wine! I would give it a solid 89. Not a bad deal for the money.
