With its playful name, strong cherry aroma and deep ruby colour, this wine can cause one to reminisce of a delicious black forest cake.

A crowd pleasing red blend from California. This wine has lots of fruit, chocolate flavours and a very noticeable sweetness. A blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Syrah.

The wine is drinkable but wouldn't make it onto my recommendation list. It's rich with fruit, chocolate, and some subtle sweetness. However I think it is a bit over the top resulting in a wine that is a bit flabby and unbalanced. Overall it simply lacks the complexity to be considered for a higher score.
