Medium ruby red in appearance. A bit dark and linear on the nose with some black cherries, metallic notes and a touch herbal. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and medium bodied. Quite dry on the palate with some wood undertones as well as some dark red berries and minerality. Medium plus finish. Drink till 2024.

Smells like

Cassis, mulberry, Cab fruit, heavy bodied, with gritty tannins, and well rounded acid.
A pleasant and pleasurable wine, after a couple of hours, really becomes a great, approachable wine.
Great, if picked up for the price point I did.
A good blend.

Fairly fruit forward, dried cherry plus berry flavors dominate. Easy drinking.

Massive bright red fruits: cherry and red plum. Some light spicing and a heavy non-cloying sweetness. No oak, light tanin. Surprising and not what I was in the mood for but delicious for a sweeter-side red.

Dark purple in color. Dark fruits and plum on the nose. A little oak and a decent amount of tannins. Worthy of a decent decant.

Color of dark purpled, almost opaque. Nose of ripe blueberries or ripe cherry, chocolate, and more black rum raisin note. Taste is sweet dressed with some spice, reminds me of rum raisin cherry ice cream fro haggen daz, nice oak and more cherry, juicy grapes, milk chocolate, port like mouthfeel, low tannins and strength of alcohol. Aftertaste does show some tannins to balance out the sweetness. Too sweet for me but a crowd pleaser for sure.
