    He said: Opened 30 minutes before drinking. Clear, light purple color. Lots of dark fruit and damp earth in the aromas. Smooth, very delicious fruit (plum, black berry, raspberry) and spice taste with a medium-long finish. WOW…WOW…WOW this is a GREAT red wine. Earthy, FULL of fruit flavors, smooth as silk, WONDERFUL freshness, perfect soft tannins and a lingering balanced finish for only $9.00!!! For a wine labeled “Red Table Wine” its OUTSTANDING (in bold type). I’ll call it a to die for wine at a bargain price.
