Definitely a great buy! I really take pride in serving wine my guests love. Then, in the end telling them what a great value they enjoyed. This is one of those wines that novices will love. With it's big and pleasant fruit feel. The men will love cause of it's gusto. The wine lovers will love cause it's not just one of those good, bad wines. By all means, a crowd pleaser and superb buy. I am that party thrower that blinds their guest and reveals the winner at the end of a night. This was a recent winner. Snatch this one up!
