Like many of Belle Meades offerings, this wine is on the sweet side. The juicy strawberry notes are very apparent and there is a nice pepper finish but it’s subtle. Pairing it with tritip and pepper roasted potatoes tones down the sweetness and brought out a more complex full bodied flavor. A great summer wine.
