Santa Rita 120 Reserva Especial 2018 Review

Sometimes I wish a winemaker/brand would either let the consumer know what their “reserve” designation is for or just not put it on the label, since it's usually meaningless. But I digress... This wine is good, but for under $10 it’s great, with notes of cannabis and gooseberries and a hint of wet concrete. The wine is balanced on the palate with minty vibes mingling with meyer lemon and soft acidity. There is just no need for the reserve on the label if it means nothing.
