Ripe fruit, spicy, fresh, but with some decent length. Classic table wine that has enough torque to handle some meat....

A clean well structured red with a nose of red and black cherry fruit and tobacco with hints of oak spice. It is...

Alluring nose evokes strawberry puree; fleshy mouth just enough of a good balance. Value virtually unbeatable. -...

It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

Awful wine. The smell (yes, smell, not aromas) were off-putting and the taste was even worse. Words fail me. The worst wine I have had in 15 years, no exaggeration.
