Overall tasted a little like fruit punch with some pepper sprinkled on top. The aromas were very ripe red berries with some smokiness. Very light red wine but the tannins were easy. Paired very well with Taco Bell late night dinner.

Very strange. I think there's something wrong with the bottle I purchased. It's very thin and had no aroma. It tastes somewhat like watered down port. Perhaps it has something to do with the screw top cap? Won't try again!

A youthful wine, can benefit from aging.

This shows good richness, with cherry and berry flavors, but it's just a bit tight on the finish.

Plenty of plum and strawberry character, with just a hint of vanilla. Medium body and finish, with fine tannins. Serious value. Best after 2004.

The blackberry theme is augmented by thyme, sage and coffee accents in this rich red, which just lacks the harmony and length to be outstanding . Best from 2012 through 2020.

Wine Tasting NotesIntense ruby red color with violet hues. Fresh and fruit-forward aromas with notes of black currants, plums, and wild strawberries. Well-balanced structure with a long finish.

A fine and well-balanced blend of equal proportions of Cabernet and the indigenous Sangiovese grape. Complex, yet soft, this deep colored red wine has a bouquet that reminds me of spices, while on the palate I find a pleasant blend of fruit and oak.

Sangiovese and Cabernet, this Good-value red is full of solid, chunky fruit. Soft, but firmly dry tannins give a sense of structure, while the upfront fruit and acids bring the whole wine into shape.
