Wonderful, full-bodied wine. An excellent sipping wine, as well as a fine table wine.

Pretty disgusting. Sweet beyond belief with a super artificial blueberry and blackberry flavor. It tastes like the stuff they fill pop-tarts with.

A little flabby on the mid section and finish. I would have liked more structure and strength. A little over the top with the fruit. On the bright side, I was 1-0-1 at Tic-Tac-Toe.

A Conundrum red? Thick. Deep dark red. On the sweet side. A lingering finish. Not sure if I am a fan.

On the low end of acidity. Medium to full body. Predominately plum flavors with underlying cherry.
