Perfect social wine for everyone except for my father who is a wine snob. Light and sweet enough for the non-regular red wine drinkers but rich enough for those who want a medium-bodied red that doesn't have a specific pairing and can be consumed by itself. From the first inhale of the delicious scent to the buttery finish, I am a fan.

Simply put, this is my everyday red drinking wine. I drink it often as iced tea or coffee. This goes well for groups of people that just like wine but aren't an enthusiast as myself. Great in the nose, medium bodied, silky, currant, berries, slightly dry, medium finish. Get a case!

This is a great wine to sip on while watching a movie and relaxing on the couch. Too sweet for many meal pairings.

Sweet and fruity. Doesn't pair well with all food. Sort of bright tasting.

Like a little better than the apothic dark. Another favorite of G's. A little pricey for a red blend, but tasty enough to make up for it.

2014 vintage. Opened on 21st May 2019. Medium body. Nose less fragrant than apothic dark blend. Overall zinfandel scent dominating and light floral note. Merlot taste follows after a smooth sip to palate. Slightly sweeter than apothic dark blend. Tannin is of medium range with tangy aftertaste. Finishing not as strong as apothic dark blend.

Full robust taste. Perfect as a solo companion for a nights fire.
