Cherry, berry, cranberry, violet notes. Boring, but balanced and good.

Strong top note of alcohol.smell, but otherwise a really pleasant table wine. Very flavorful with bright fruit flavors.

My go-to red blend. Well-balanced combination of flavors that goes with anything, but also tastes great on its own. Dry, sweet, and tart, all in one great wine. One of my favorite wines to have on hand.

Super Tuscan Blend (85 Sangiovese, 10 Cab Sauv And 5 Merlot). Ripe tart cherry and cranberry aromas and flavors. Hints of purple flowers. Finish is dominated with notes of chocolate. Earthy with nicely balanced acidity. Excellent food wine and outstanding QPR!

This is one of the best inexpensive Sangiovese blends I’ve ever had. Fruity and very good with cheese and pasta. This is a good one to keep around.

Blackberry and some plum, not sweet but pleasant. Fuller body with a short, dry finish.

Solid Tuscan blend that packs a punch. Smokey on the palate, dry, and smooth, despite the bold flavor profile. Sits well with pungent cheeses and spicy red sauce dishes. Decanting recommended.

Solid pickup at Safeway, perfect for a second bottle of the night.
