Red blend - fruit forward, but perhaps not ripe fruit. Did not seem full bodied.

This is a basic but serviceable weeknight red. Jammy and a little on the sweet side.

Wow, this is a huge, spicy, smoky delicious red blend. Gen5 nailed it! Tremendous fruit, smoky peppery nose and wonderfully balanced with a touch of acid and tannins. Tasted it against the Cupcake Black Forest Decadent red, which is very good, but had the misfortune of being tasted with the Gen5.
