Tasting:

    He said: Clear dark garnet color. Rich aromas of smoke and dark fruit. Quite strong dry taste of cherry and plum fruit with lots of dusty oak and burned wood. A long finish that carries the taste on and on to a tart strong mineral ending. VERY fresh tasting, a wonderful fruity character and lots of pepper throughout. This is OUTSTANDING wine from the first sniff to the end of the finish and at only $15. it easily gets our Quality wine at a bargain price rating. At this price this is a wine to REALLY GET EXCITED ABOUT!!!

    She said: I used to think blends were made up of leftovers but a wine like this proves how wonderful a blend can be even at a good price. Dark garnet red in color the wine has an enticing bouquet and tasty flavor that lasts into the long finish. It is full bodied, has medium tannins and is pleasantly dry. Absolutely yumm and a bargain at $15. I look forward to second bottle.
