Hard to beat for a 16 dollar bottle of wine. The word "juice" comes to mind, but I've had 25 dollar bottles that weren't as good.

Crimson in color, touch of tobacco on the nose and full bodied on the palate. Quite a punch, no shortage of bold, acidic, fruit flavor. Tannic on the finish with some heat and a gin of oak. Overall, this wine surprised me in quality... But if labels are an accurate indicator, is does taste how you'd expect based on the visually busy label.

Has been craving for wines for 3 weeks. Finally! Freak Show, big black cherry, plums, black cassis, with some sweet vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, also hints of liquorice hiding. Appealing nose for sure. Smooth tannin and easy to approach, more of sweet side mixed with black chocolate and mocha flavor. Overall, it's good and a pleaser. 14.5% alc. 2013 vintage

Great wine if you love New World. Pronounced oak with huge vanilla, syrupy fruit, a little bit of meddling spice. Paired nicely with ribs.
