    was pleasantly surprised, as it had a mild fruit flavor, with a teasing of sweetness. The vanilla Nd chocolate comes through to give it a nice rounded flavour. it is absent of tannins with a hint at the end which just reminds you that this is a Red....All in all, was pleasantly surprised. drank with a roast beef dinner,but was able to enjoy on its own later. For the price, wa a bargain. Will buy again to have on hand as a stand by, or to enjoy sipping on the deck.

    this is the perfect wine for people who love spicy food and red wine. it is more on the sweet side and helps combat with the spice of the food so you can thoroughly enjoy both without sacrificing flavor either way

    Goût très prononcé de fruits sucrés la première seconde puis les tanins sortent immédiatement après donnant un goût semi-corsé avec une fin fruitée et consistante. Arrière goût de cerise, framboise et cassis.

    smooth and red fruit-forward. vanilla notes. you can taste it has merlot in the blend, cab sauvignon and syrah add structure for a wine meant to be consumed now.

    "Layers of dark red fruit complemented by hints of vanilla and mocha." Way too fruity and sweet. Very young and simple. Avoid.

    Nice smooth red that goes well with port wine cheese spread and crackers. Or just a nice cool night patio sipper!
