This was a favorite of mine for a short time, however my body hasn’t reacted favorable to this wine in the recent months.

Took a few minutes to open up. Warm notes of cherry.

This Merlot blend is juicy with flavors of ripe plums, black currents, cola, and hint of vanilla. Mouth feel is round and smooth, with a spicy kick at the finish. Simple and tasty.

Not bad. Just not memorable. Their dueling pistols is much better blend, of course I am biased to those grapes.

Ok. Too acidic and harsh for my taste. A disappointing bottle. Far inferior to their excellent Zinfandel

Great Zin. Dark cherry and a little smoke or tobacco. Doesn't taste very high alcohol.

Harsh and thin. For this much acid punch, I prefer lemon juice. A decent finish does not make up for its miserable start.
