He said: Served slightly chilled. Very, very dark red with some purple cast in the color. Ripe dark berry and damp earth bouquet. Lots of strong ripe cherry taste that continues through the medium-long finish. Very, very soft tannins, just enough acidity to provide depth and LOTS of pepper and spice in the finish. This really improved as it warmed up…we will not chill the second bottle. I really liked the juicy fruit and soft, easy drinking character of the wine…this is more my kind of wine than Vicky’s. At $8.10 this is a GREAT red table wine.
She said: I’m not a lover of soda pop so I was not taken by this wine. Yep, you got it, I did not fall in love with this even at its bargain price. Yes, it has a wonderful red cherry bouquet; yes it has a great red berry flavors, high acidity, and medium body. But, for me it lacks the tannins I love. Is it a good wine? Yes, but not not for me.
Comments: Don’t chill before serving.
