This non-vintage, non varietal specific blend promises to "rock your taste buds". Probably not, but it is a decent...

Really liked the first bottle I had. Did not taste the Dutch dropje but will try to taste for it next bottle. On the buy again list at the moment.

Talk about a good everyday drinking wine. It is fresh, smooth, and fruity. Nothing about this great valued wine will make a person put his wine glass down. It is great for parties in that it will go with appetizers, meats, fishes, and even chocolate. I like this wine.

Translucent cherry colour. Lighter bodied and smooth. Starts out fruity on the palate then a tug of war between sweet and salty ensues. It's like sucking on a cherry cough drop and a Dutch dropje (black licorice candy) at the same time. A bit dusty and some bitterness and alcohol on the short to medium length finish. Wouldn't offend as a party red, but nothing revolutionary.

This deep purply red wine smells of berry jam, vanilla and spice. This lip-smacking Californian blend is super juicy and reminiscent of a zinfandel. Very low tannins and flavours of plum, ripe cherry, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla and sweet spice, with a medium-long finish. Nothing overly complex here, just easy drinking.

Sous un format de 750 ml, on a un liquide boisé, vanillé et sucré à l’excès, qui a su faire l’unanimité autour de la table. Le Cliff 79 Cabernet/Shiraz qui le suivait passait pour un modèle de retenue et de délicatesse, c’est pour dire… Si c’est pour ça la campagne de ramener les vins à moins de 10$ sur les tablettes de la SAQ, je suis plutôt d’avis que la SAQ devrait chercher à étoffer sa catégorie autour de 15$ plutôt que de sacrifier à ce point…
