This wine has nice color, not inked up with a blend...garnet red not deep...

The nose is strawberry, raspberry, with the cherry kick this comes through on the taste with a very supple finish...the wine was French oaked and not done in new oak as far as I can tell, as this would have killed it...round tannins , easy drinking...nice spice of earth and clove in the background...no bitter snap or alc bite at all...

the best part is this does not taste like over ripe candy...great QPR @ $11.99 I grabbed 1/2 case and will go back for more...score solid 87 points...drink now through the next 4 years...

alc by vol 13.9 % smooth...

Big shout out to the man who gave us all this tip ...nice call ...Bob Hunnicutt..

Thanks for the tasting note, now I have to go wine shopping.

I'm sorry, I think it is bland. I can't tell if it is pinot whatever or Grenache and something--we get it for $7 and it is overpriced. Bad eateries sell it for $25.

Cooking is chemistry, baking is alchemy.
