This Hawaiian punch coloured wine, brings forth a strong red fruit aroma, with slight hints of apple. On the palate it's soft tannins and light-medium body feel, help maintain a sweet red fruit jam flavour. Short and clean finish. Tasted February 2012

Tight, musty nose.

Medium body. Flavourful but it tasted cheap, simple and commercial to me. Sweet, not much tannin. Sour cherry finish.

A drinkably cheap wine at a cheap price.
