Ex’Arnon Red

Robert Parker: Lovely, this seems elegant, impeccably balanced and distinguished. The flavor medley alternates between a touch of beef and lots of red fruits. It’s always serious and dry and just a touch understated. It’s a perfect food wine. Thanks, no doubt, to the late release, this is easily drinkable right now. The tannins are not hard, but they still provide a firm finish and offer good support for the fruit. This is nicely done, pure, fresh, and rather serious. It is a good value as well. It seems like the most successful of the producer’s Lexis offerings this report.
