I really really like this wine. Just a little dryness n lots of sweet berriness. Very good n rich.

What a delicious wine! When it said "Black Blend" I imagined a really dark purple wine, not so. It's a beautiful ruby red color with dark cherry and raspberry tastes. I love a wine with a surprise! Nice mild smooth finish. Gotta have a good wine while watching Game of Thrones!

This 2012 Black Blend wine of Petite Syrah and Syrah. This wine comes from Lodi, CA. The nose has an extremely lush black cherry with hints of all spice, cinnamon and vanilla. It is s very smooth mouth feel with a lush fruit explosion mid palate. The finish is very smooth like a baby's bottom! Have Spaghetti that will pair nicely.

$10 at HEB. Not bad for a cheap blend!

Not very dark or full bodied and a bit sweet for my taste. In fact, I can’t get past the sweetness to taste much of anything.

The nose on this is very light, but then there is a ton of chocolate and cherries for the Taste. Some acidity as well, which makes it an interesting wine by for the price. Would definitely purchase again. Great option to bring to a party.
