My local wine guy recommended this wine to me, but I was disappointed. It has an awkward finish that left a bad taste in my mouth. I kept expecting it to open up the second and third days, but didn't get there. It wasn't horrible, but not something I'd buy again.

A best buy in my book. Medium bodies with a silky mouth fell. A nose of hickory with hints of blackberry. Rich in tannins with a subtle wild berry taste. Long, lasting finish.

Earthy scent. Dry, tangy and a bit powdery.

Smoke, herbal and plum aromas lead into a light-bodied, graceful Merlot that sports crushed raspberry followed by easy tannins on the finish. Drink now.

A clean, basic red wine thatrsquo;s focused on standard berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Fresh but simple, with limited raspberry and cherry flavors along with a touch of vanilla. Competent but entirely regular.

Bright ruby. Attractive aromas of cherry, raspberry, cola and black pepper. Sweet, supple and round, with good intensity to the straightforward dark fruit flavors. In no way complex but very easy to drink and avoiding the greenness of so many inexpensive (and expensive!) merlots. Finishes with lingering sweetness and an echo of pepper.

Weedy and herbal, but there are also black cherries and mocha on the nose and bitter chocolate and coffee on the palate. Finishes with toffee, smoke and herbs, offering surprising complexity in a wine of this genre.

Inky ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas and flavors of blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Dense yet lively, with good lift and juicy intensity to the dark berry flavors. The lingering finish features building tannins and notes of dark chocolate and herbs.

Has a fair amount of toast, but overall this is fleshy and sweet, with tasty brier and pepper notes. Nice juicy finish. Drink now.

Great concentration of dark red fruits, with delicate sweet tones of vanilla, cloves and coconut. On the palate, the wine is powerful and concentrated with ripe, soft savory tannins.
