Lots of dark fruit but nicely structured and balanced, especially for the price.

Deep Dark purple color. Brilliant. Lots of spice such as cinnamon, clove and licorice mixed with red fruit and mint aromas. Sweet tannins. Persistent with long finish.

Residuel sugar. Wine engineered and made for beginners who want their wine to taste like alcoholic grape juice.

This was nice and rich with heavy legs. Paired very well with my seared venison loin. Lots of blackcurrant, sweet coffee, cherry and raspberry. Good tannin that holds on (even after a two and a half hour decant). The wine keeps a good acidity even with its very round and full mouth finish. It needs a rich meat to accompany otherwise it may feel too Shiraz/Ribena to drink on its own.

Was hoping for more from this as it was one of the first Cali sightings of the week that didn’t begin with ‘Woodbridge’. Turned out to be flat and flabby, which I suspect the jug wine would have been as well. Not exactly my favorite wine alliteration.
