Our Tasting Notes:
This tasty red blend was a soft, sweet, easy drinking wine. Flavors of raspberries, ripe cherries, and some spice. I hesitate to say this, but there was a good amount of jammy goodness in this wine. I know typically a “jammy” wine is looked down upon and not always a favorite of many wine lovers but this blend really impressed me. While there was definite sweetness, the spice and structure really made this an interesting wine. At around $7 on sale you can’t get much better than this.
