My first "mixed blacks" wine, and hello gorgeous. Hard to identify what I'm working with in this blend but:
-fairly lengthy legs around the glass; medium plus body and pretty deep purple juice
-nose smells of smoky meats, black currants, hint of blueberries
-the wine finishes quickly, so not very tannic. Tastes of raspberry/blackberry pie

Always heard good things about Girard's Mixed Blacks wine, and I'm happy to report I'm in agreement. Easy drinking wine that does just find stand alone.

I felt it was a bit lighter than I was expecting.

Blend of 15+ varieties of grapes from old pre-prohibition vines. Medium tannins with soft acidity. Slightly lacking complexity for the price.
