For under $11 I thought this wine was killer. Distinctly Primitivo with spice, smoked blueberry and griddle pan. It...

This is an opaque wine made from primitivo (aka zinfandel). Expect mild aromas of prune, blueberry and vanilla with...

Ripe brambly fruit. Lots of spice on the finish with decent tannins. Quality southern Italian primitivo. Tasted...

Great value for the price. Rich and full fruit flavours, with emphasis on blueberry jam and some vanilla notes. Medium bodied with good length on the finish, this wine was a hit with my friends that like fruit forward wines.

Wow. Great value for $10.95! Light fruit notes of plum and black cherry on the nose. Slightly sweet dark fruit on the palate at first turns to balanced fruit, acidity, and soft tannins. Great sipping or with a meal.

This tastes like an entry level California zinfandel, except it costs a lot less. Excellent value.

Raisined by this point but still good complexity, smoothness and length and a steal for the price. Not for everyone (old school) but a great deal and just has some life left

Bought the last two bottles on the shelf at the Carlton St LCBO (dust on them...perhaps they were upright for too long?) We opened both since we thought the first bottle was "off". The second was slightly better but not worth finishing. We found the wine to be raw and immature with a cheap candied cherry flavour. Disappointing.
