Quite tart. Sour cherry flavours with an undercurrent of oak. Smooth and easy to drink but, at $23.95, I am not finding this a screamingly good buy.

Dark in the glass. Boozy, sharp nose. Some air freshener. Full bodied. Warm, spicy, peppery palate. Tannins a bit rustic. Definitely a food wine.

An enjoyable wine but significantly over-priced for what you get.

dark fruit and vanilla - decent dinner wine, not overly complex, new world silkiness and a bit of greenness

Very fruity nose with mild spices fighting to shine through. New world smooth makes it very easy to drink. I think it's a good option for those looking for a red to go with seafood.
