Whoa, what a bottle of wine for $14!! Amazing combo of fruit (raspberry and blackberry) and earthiness that is unexpected for the price. The acidity is quite prominent, keeping the wine extremely fresh. This is seriously good juice. Fruit, freshness, earthiness, and cheap price tag........what's not to love??

It's only wine but I like it

Loads of very ripe dark berry fruit, pepper and herbs, Quite dense and approachable. Needs a bit more complexity and strucutre to score 90pts, but I'd be happy drinking this any day of the week...or weekend. An excellent value at $14. For current consumption or over the next couple of years. Tasted June 2012.
