My Rating 73 Points. 
Price $15.

Dark ruby in color with medium intensity and a light purplish rim.

Tart on the nose with sour cherries, strawberries, cranberries, red currants, oak, vanilla, cloves and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with high acidity and long, fat legs.

Tart on the attack and a nice mouth feel on the palate with sour cherries, strawberries, raspberries, oak, cloves, vanilla, milk chocolate and black pepper.

Short finish with soft tannins and spices. A bit hot on the throat.

A Plain red blend. Unbalanced and unattractive. But if you have to drink it, you can…
Aged in oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
