Clean sweet and refreshing — 21 days ago
With Ben, Meghan and Giuseppe on a cool summer night in which I broke my own wine glass AND Ben's by a nice fire on the patio.
"I really like this!" -Me
"Nutty overtones with deep plum flavor. Oh that's pretty good! That's yummy." - Giuseppe
"Kind of astringent. I also get nutty. (G interjects he was joking about that and doesn't get nutty at all. He gets almost honey and thinks it would make a great sangria) Honeyed on the front, astringent on the end." -Meghan
"Very tanniny and dry." - Ben
"My take is that Meghan and Ben are wrong and I agree, it does taste good." -Giuseppe
"Would buy again" - Meghan — 23 days ago

points for a pretty pomegranate and crushed cranberry nose but heads into a sangria-kombucha thing that is very polarizing at this table. we either do that or we don’t. chilled, the low alcohol makes this a daytime hot-weather slaker....if you like that kinda thing. I imagine it wouldn’t be bad as a popsicle, hmmm... — 5 days ago
The calm before the storm (move out day!)
Succulent aroma. Big on the apricots in a good way. Wildflower honey. Citrus and the acidity of a good white balsamic. A cornucopia of tropical fruits.
Mangoes. Dry. Reminds me of an unripe, green mango. The type that’s really great for sangria. This, too. This would be a great base for an orange sangria. Would take really well to tropical fruits and strawberries.
I don’t really understand the hate/ indifference in the other reviews. Sure, it’s not a grand slam, but it’s at least a triple, maybe an in-the-park homer.
I like the dry quality and how it plays with the fruitiness. It’s a welcome flirtation.

A great Sangia to put in the refrigerator and sip all day long! Very refreshing! Add fruit or not. — 3 months ago
Delicious. Much better than I was expecting. Not too sweet with just a hint of hibiscus and ginger. Fantastic for an impromptu afternoon on the beach. — a month ago
This is a Syrah-Mourvèdre blend. Lovely lighter color. Like rose hips and rust meet blood. Dusky-dusty aromas. Some ink well as well. Flavors are nice. Smooth and easy. Balance is good. Not as chewy and dense as I like my Syrah, but it’s elegant and citrus-y in a blood oranges and sangria sorta way. Plenty of spice box and tart red berry syrup too. This is a nice wine. One of the better I’ve had from South Africa. Much more reserved than most of them. — a month ago
