    He said: Brick red color. Very strong fruity/ripe berry bouquet. Strong blackberry taste that extends into a long, very dry, fruity finish with hints of oak at the end. It’s has nicely balanced acidity and the tannins are pretty smooth. Not a great buy, but the quality was about in line with the price.

    She said: Dark red color. Very fragrant bouquet followed by a tasty full bodied blackberry flavor and ending with a long flavorful finish. Well balanced with firm tannins. Love it!
