Can't go wrong with a $10 wine that tastes like this. Strong cherry, not too sweet.

Wow. This is my new favorite "everyday" wine (~$10). Bold, yet very silky. Strong immediate notes of black cherry, followed by blackberry finish. Flavor hangs on the palate. Can't go wrong with this wine. Highly recommended.

Loved this wine. My new favorite. Rich black cherry and just enough sweetness.

Wow. Bold and smooth. Definitely spot on with the blackberry/cherry combination. Flavors of deep black cherry

Repeat. Good deep red. Lots of deep cherry and hearty red without tannin

Can’t go wrong with this choice for a house red at an incredibly affordable $9.99. Not overly fruity, light cherry flavor with a dry-ish finish on the tongue. I’ll definitely be getting this again

Hint of pepper on the nose, tart at first but smooth finish.

Okay for a cheap wine. Not a first choice.
