Trader Joe's, ~$7

Dark and opaque and a pungent smoky nose with a hint of fruit. Smooth but fairly full bodied and syrupy, on the tart and dry side but not in a bad way, has a decent alcohol bite. Starts with a pleasant slightly tart red fruit flavor, and a noticable smokiness follows shortly after giving a nice complexity to keep it interesting. Loved the mix of smoke and tart fruit in the flavors, if it was a little less harsh and tart it would be amazing but can't complain at all for the price. One of my favorites at this price point.

love the name and like the taste, not a whole lot of complexity but some nice flavors coming through and not too much acidity

Tobacco and spice on the nose. Sharp red cherry, medium tannins, a layer of raspberry. Great price!

$6 at Trader Joe’s, dry with pleasant tannins. A very decent bargain, would buy again.

Deep, vibrant pungent spice and fruit on the nose, coupled with subtle toasty vanilla oak complimenting the blackcurrant/raspberry aromas
