A great sauv. — 8 months ago
I don't drink much zin, but I was recommended this bottle and honestly, it's really enjoyable. I'm not trying to be like all those other people who only give 9+ when they like something. Instead I'll say this, at $9.99, I'd happily buy 6 of these and proudly open them at a larger dinner party. Decant them and people would easily suggest this is a $35+ bottle.

Fine overall, tasted a bit like melon but overall pretty bland — a year ago
The wine smells of salt water (seaweed), fireworks (sulfur) and ripe cherries. On the tongue it's simple lots of wood, but a compressed body and flavor profile. Somewhat candied cherry but stiffled but a tangy wood note. It's totally fine by itself but would be lost in food. Id buy it again if it was under $15 but I can't remember how much I paid for it. — 2 years ago
This is all caramel. I am a sniff away from being drunk but this is tasty. Not refined but enjoyable. — a year ago
