4 stars for the price and taste combo. Good anytime red.
Smooth & Supple
This is a fascinating wine if allowed to breathe for DAYS. Otherwise, it's an average red blend. But 4 days after our first glass, with the bottle pumped, it had opened up to reveal marvelous and complex notes, including a huge note of pine - which doesn't sound great but was FABULOUS. Bogle needs to do this delayed tasting/breathing test. Awesome! It was transformed from a $10 wine to a stellar $40 wine.
Big & Bold
Meh...strong alcohol notes. Wife and I refer to it as "hot". Will not buy again.more like 1.5 stars
