Tasting notes on the wine:  

His Detour Rouge is a wonderfully light and fruity red, with lots of candied cherry and strawberry on the nose, but digs deeper and chewier on the palate, and finishes with great length. Ever had lemon pepper mushrooms off the grill? This is like that in a bottle. Incredibly drinkable. Emmeline Zhao
