Nice and smooth, extremely drinkable with perfect balance, elegance and tenderness. Not too complex, though.

Color of cranberry juice with a bit of purple hue on the rim. Nose of fresh cranberry, plum, some vanilla, however nose fades away a bit too fast. Taste is quite pleasing, with subtle sweetness, zesty, cranberry, tinkling on the tongue, and some spice at the end. Very easygoing. Aftertaste of some more bittersweet zest, sweetness, vanilla flavor, spice, and medium long. Kind of crowd pleaser.

Really liked it. Great notes of vanilla and caramel in an affordable wine.

Not awful but syrupy and something is off. Uninspiring.

2016 in 2019. Medium ruby color. Pretty strawberry and cherry notes backed by some earthy notes. Disappointing after that; tart cherry out of balance alcohol with a short spicy and hot finish.
