Two oceans because from the tip of Africa with different winds. This opens up much better the second day or aerate for an hour before you drink it. Smooth fruity Ruby color. Enjoyed with cheese and snacks for dinner.

Nothing on the nose. Leathery - not in a good way. Woody with a rough after taste. Not a lot of body. Bland.

Not sweet, which I like, but kind of flat/lacking character and it burned on the way down. Very winey tasting and good value for an every day red wine that's not pumped full of sugar to mask it's flaws, I'm just not particularly into red wine.

UPDATE: we only drank about half the bottle the day it was opened, and when we went to finish it the following day it was nasty and oxidized and vinegary. Would not repurchase based on how quickly it turned. Usually we can enjoy a bottle of red over 2-3 days, and this was a disappointment.

Costing under $10, I was extremely impressed with this wine!
