Nothing fancy, but that's the point. Pairs well with Wednesday nights and pizza apparently, and is to be shared with girls. I like their theory, it's a great after the bar "let's just go home and drink wine" red.

Good balance and body. We had it with leftover spaghetti and meatballs. Gonna finish it up while watching Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Happy Thanksgiving!

2012 Sexual Chocolate. It's a big, jammy wine that is well balanced with hints of vanilla and toasted almond. The mocha flavors are undeniable, but not overwhelming. I already bought another bottle. Main grapes in this blend are Syrah and Zinfindel.

Hate the name, and the label is a bit of a gimmick, but love this wine. Immediate perfume on the nose, and silky smooth blend.
