Nothing spectacular. A drinkable wine for a low price, and it tastes exactly like it sounds. Decent blackberry and cherry flavor, but no real character to speak of.
I had this wine for the first time this year paired with at filet on my anniversary. I have to say, it was a great wine. I liked it so well, I went out and bought two bottles the next day. Cherry, Vanilla and Chocolate with a touch of tannin. Smooth finish. I would have to agree, no dessert, just pour me another glass.
This one's a total fruitbomb. Interesting bright cherry aromas and spicy fruit and leather flavors. Finishes a bit rough, and the first kick is a bit hot -- still for the price you're getting a solidly good wine.
Solid and fruit-forward, fair for the price, but pretty boring.
Very nice for the price - thick, fruity, a bit tart, but very mouth filling. More syrah like than merlot (spicy, meaty, licorice and coffee etc). Its alright.
good berry flavor,smooth
Good wine to pick up for a routine dinner at home. Spicy for a merlot, which is probably why I liked it.
