Color of glowing bubbly purple, nice legs. Nose of coffee, currants and ripe grapes, fermented cabbage, good acidity and strength of alcohol, and some more grape juice. Taste is smooth with tinkling ripe grapes, a bit zesty, a bit minty, coke cola, spice and a bit peppery, low tannins, and quite smooth. Aftertaste show some more grape juice, some bitterness, and some more peppery note. On par. — a day ago
This red blend from Columbia Valley is easy drinking and tasty.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with mild complexity.
Showing black fruits with earth, wood, spices, chocolates, light vegetables, licorice, light vanilla, tobacco and black pepper.
A good everyday wine to sip on by the porch. Tangy and spicy.
Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and crackers.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Second try. No decanting, opened and poured through aerator. More black cherry than I remember from last time (both on the nose and the palate), but still tasty and silky. Still a good value. Look forward to trying again. — 3 days ago
Color of different shades of purple, with a bit copper and grey tones on the rim. Nose of fruity dark fruits, aldehyde, spicy and fermented cabbage, and just a touch of oak. Taste is smooth, marginal tannins and easy, a bit sweet mixed with zesty bitterness and right amount of acidity, fresh raspberry, some oak, and warmth of alcohol. Aftertaste is medium long , with more berries note and a bit touch of mineral. Not bad. — 3 days ago
