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.

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

A dark cherry aroma greets you as this is poured slight acidic. Slight mocha, raspberry flavor. Very smooth and leaves a fresh flavor on your palate Salute!
