Ruby-red. Rich, spicy aromas of bright red and dark berries lifted by black pepper. Weighty and sweet, with good depth of flavor and a tangy, acid lift to the flavors on the aftertaste. This is an even better buy than its tree-hugging sibling.

5.0 of 5 Stars Definitely an interesting find...

While browsing through the store, I decided to look at some of the rated wines so that I could wish. Imagine my surprise at finding this one with a teensie little price tag. Very enjoyable, and would go well with a nice thick steak, or even as an after dinner wine.
3.0 of 5 Stars Drinkable

After decanting a half an hour, great fruit notes of berries and even cherries were revealed on the nose. On the palate the same flavors were revealed with medium tannins, which gave the wine a little stiffness. Not much complexity was observed. Also, the high alcohol content of 14.5% really shone through on the warm, slightly hot, finish; a taste I did not appreciate, but which others might find acceptable. Overall, drinkable and properly priced, showing little complexity and balance, but great fruitiness. After tasting, I decided to make sangria on account of the personally intolerable alcohol.
