WINEMAKER'S NOTES: Shorter fermentation time allowed us to capture all of the fruit character and reduce the tannins. Small French and American oak barrels to develop the wonderful flavors of rich caramel, vanilla bean, and roasting coffee aromatics. Vibrant color, unbridled berry character and plenty of texture

Always a 10. This wine is bold, velvety, chocolatey, and rich. For $12.50 at Total Wine it's a STEAL.

Always been one of my favorites. Velvety and chocolate with a subtle berry finish and not too sweet. Was thrilled to see it by the glass on the menu at Bar Red Beard.

Tar and licorice, good viscosity. Good wine at this price point.

Too jammy for me but dry enough to drink it down.

Really big ripe fruits, plum and blackberries. Not too sweet despite the berry profile. Really great in its own right...super great value at the price.

Slightly sweet and real smooth. Very jammy with hints of chocolate. I really enjoyed this!
