Perfect social wine for everyone except for my father who is a wine snob. Light and sweet enough for the non-regular red wine drinkers but rich enough for those who want a medium-bodied red that doesn't have a specific pairing and can be consumed by itself. From the first inhale of the delicious scent to the buttery finish, I am a fan.

Simply put, this is my everyday red drinking wine. I drink it often as iced tea or coffee. This goes well for groups of people that just like wine but aren't an enthusiast as myself. Great in the nose, medium bodied, silky, currant, berries, slightly dry, medium finish. Get a case!

This is a great wine to sip on while watching a movie and relaxing on the couch. Too sweet for many meal pairings.

Sweet and fruity. Doesn't pair well with all food. Sort of bright tasting.

Quite sweet, maybe a touch too sweet but still goes down easy. Would be a good transition wine, I think.

Not a bad wine, but too much fluffy sweetness for my taste. Loads of vanilla, cherry

Don’t buy. Nasty-sweet. Perfumy too-too much.
