Blackberries and strawberries up front, a little too much alcohol lingering though. But for $9.99 I didn't have high expectations and this is really not half bad. Still, in my search for excellent bargains, this is not a high note.
(13.8%) Tasting a newer version of the Redart here as this one checks in as 70% Merlot, 20% Syrah, 10% Other Reds. Big ripe berry flavors upfront intermixed with some tighter, tarter currant notes which leads to a spiced acidity which helps this one maintain balance. The spice lasts for the remainder of this one and is joined by light tannins which give way to a soft richness that lingers throughout the finish. All the fruit of those that run away but with the balance to bring it back to earth. Juicy not jammy here and that makes this one well suited to share with a meal. For $10 this is a wine to have around for any occasion. Another winner here; well done!
Decent, though my palate detected streaks of astringency. Fine for an everyday glass with a buddy, but hardly a wine for anything beyond a casual drink. Berries with minerality. A little bit of a wet towel stank with fruit. Wouldn't necessarily invest in another bottle.
