Very apt. Can't tell if good, or if I like it because I've hiked 10 miles.

Ruby hue with medium-plus saturation. Aromas and flavors of baking spice, blackberry, cassis, oak, strawberry, toast, and vanilla. Palate finishes quickly with a faint hint of leather and pepper. Soft, medium-low tannins; and medium-low acidity. Incredible QPR for a merlot under $10.

Smooth, no after "bite". Enjoying a glass by itself looking at the lake. Not paired with any food. Very good.

Barely drinkable. Has the sweetness of rotten fruit

Not bad for a $9 twist cap wine. A little sweet for a merlot. Lacks body.

We bought this because of the fun name...which is the reason we buy most of the wine we buy, lol. It's ok for the price. Kind of a water downed Merlot though.
