Like a cherry pie coated in worn leather and Dove soap. Is that good? Why yes, yes it is.

Drank 6/28/18

Light nose of red cherry and a touch of earth. Flavors of sweet and sour red cherries with some light leathery notes. Fairly simple and a little bit too fruit forward for my tastes, although many would enjoy this. A simple everyday drinker, though lacking a little depth and complexity.

I think JS went 92 pts on this (What?!) I don't understand this but definitely cannot complain at the $8 price point (Costco). A good value simple italian red.

2/21/7/3/3 + 50 = 86 pts

What's not to like?
Bin cherry, ripe raspberries, mocha and just a kiss of roasted fennel!

First sip was awful. An hour later it's actually good. Shouldn't have to let a wine with a plastic cork breath for an hour to enjoy it. What am I gonna tell my customers who just want a quick spaghetti meatballs and go? Lol. I'll have to re-assess at a later date.

Dry, full bodied. Good on its own or with classic Italian food.
