Juicy, ruby, a little bit spicy, with a nice minty finish. Not a serious wine, heaven knowns, but for $14, quite satisfactory.

Begins with a surprisingly complex nose of strawberry along with herbal notes of thyme and peppercorn. On the palate you get an initial burst of bright fresh strawberries along with hints of sour cherry which continue through a brief but enjoyable finish. Overall a lovely refreshing wine that paired well with Lemongrass chicken legs & baby bok choy. ($10) [12/7/17]

Nice. Light flavor, very smooth, slightly bitter finish. Inexpensive, would buy again.
