    He said: Very dark red color. Very light berry bouquet. Strong dry, dark berry taste that continues into a short/medium length finish. This is mello with soft tannins but has hints of sweetness that is a dissapointment.

    She said: Very dark red color. Delicious light aroma followed by the same flavors at first, but over taken by sweetness that lasts into the finish. Medium body, slight acidity, soft tannins. Sweetness is a turn off for me but otherwise okay wine at $10.
