This is yummy! Jammy big fruit, vanilla berries--getting a mix of black berry and some cherries. Tasted against the Gen5 Ancestral Red, which was slightly better. The OZV had a touch more acid. But don't get me wrong, I would be extremely content to be served this anytime!!
p.s, Lori said this was too acidic for her palate.

Nice red blend, little on the sweet side. Blackberries, vanilla and mocha. Great for the price..$10.00 Costco.

Great strong flavors. The blackberry and vanilla flavors really shine.

Rich nose of preserves, solid body of fresh fruit, and a finish that stays with you. A slight burn midway tampers with the flavor.

Touch more acid would have done wonders, but good fruit, solid blend. But for this price range, there is better.

Dark ruby color. Aromas of blackberry and strawberry jam, vanilla, toast, and cream; even a hint of lavender. Very fruit-forward and concentrated flavors on the palate. Smooth and tasty, but perhaps on the cloying side of jammy for some. Enjoyable table wine nonetheless.
