This is one of our go-to $10 supermarket reds, and in tonight’s case, also a great choice for the base of a beef stew. With some air there is plenty of rich ripe berry fruit, baking spice and vanilla. Med acid and tannin in balance, and (where the price point shows) a dry short finish. It’s boring to drink this stuff regularly, but it’s tasty juice, and always a crowd pleaser for guests who aren’t expecting anything special.

A bit earthy and smokey which is rare for me to like, but this one is also a bit sweet and has a solid fruity finish. Easy drinker and a definite value for the low price
