Acidic. Like drinking nail polish remover, with a wine flavor.

I bought this wine at Trader Joe's. It's decent for the money. Not much richness to it though. I would probably buy it again.

Solid, inexpensive red. Pretty great for $6.

Lots of flavor but still has nice smooth finish typical of good blends

Let it breath for an hour and have something to eat with this....and oh will it will shine! Vanilla, blackberries, well balanced and medium tannins. a bit thin and young on its own, but have it with a pizza and it cuts theough with lots of juicy flavor!

Tastes very similar to another favorite, Apothic Red. Cherry is the strongest fruit I taste, with some sweetness, maybe vanilla. Nice everyday wine at Trader Joes for about $8...can't beat that.

First glass not so good, but it did get slightly better with air contact. Definitely aerate.
