Huge value red #wine blend.

#Greneche #Monastrell mix. Dark , wild berry aromas. Opaque in the glass , shiny sheen. Palate is moderate with medium body, mild tannin and deceiving acid. More tart, dark fruit flavors. Good structure. Opened 3/23/17

Smells like beef jerkey, big wine. Don't hope for elegance. But still...

Rich flavor and good balance of tannin. One of the best I have ever tasted

Spicy at first but got better and juicier at the end.

Moderate tannins that grow as it opens. Juicy fruits, yet somehow light. Starts leathery.

Found on sale for $8 at buschs.Black cherry and plum, one of the more tart reds I’ve had. High tannin, long grit on tongue but not in a bad way. Tobacco leather smoke flavors. Smells reminiscent of slim jims. Very interesting wine well worth the price.
