He said: Dark red color. Dark bery bouquet with hints of alcohol. Strong taste of ripe berry and cherry that continues into a medium length finish, but the tannins and acid linger. Good with the garlic and rosemary chicken. This is an OK wine, but surly not memorable. And, the acidity was just a little to much for me. At $25 I don’t recommend it.
She said: Loved it! The nice fragrant bouquet and flavor was full of berry; body was medium while acidity and tannins were moderate just like I like it. The only down side was a disappointing finish, too short and with a bit of sourness for such a tasty wine. For $25 I want a good finish too. A hoot with cheese and chocolate
