March 20, 2014 - Not bad for $8. Meaty and drinkable.

November 26, 2013 - A great value. I'd forgotten what I paid for it and on the second glass I was certain this was more like a good 12-14 dollar wine; it was only 7.60. Medium body. Berries up front with a balanced finish. A nice one to add to my weekday standards.

July 16, 2013 - It's really pretty insane how good this wine is for $7.99 (or less with mixed case discounts in MA with no tax). Fresh, fruit forward with supporting earthy characteristics. Mad value. Back up the truck.
