This is a very nice red blend! Great find! Not too sweet. Has kind of a smoky flavor which are from the chocolate notes. The chocolate and caramel flavor a blend so well with the black cherry, raspberry and vanilla. Smooth texture.

This is one of those drinking wines. A whole bottle can disappear pretty quick once opened.

Velvety, chocolate tannins, light to no body, almost like a French, not much of a nose. Taste evaporates quickly, but a delightful experience!

Really like this one, especially for how cheap it is. Great go to weekday wine. I've had it before and I'd keep buying it
