  • Gold Medal / 93 Points

    Los Angeles International Wine Competition

  • 88 Points / Tasting Panel Magazine

    “Smooth, lush and deep with plum, black raspberry and lively acid structure; silky, vibrant and balanced with style and good length.”

  • Recommended / The Frugal Tasters

    “Enjoyable flavors of cherry, cranberry, and eucalyptus...wonderful balance of fruit and earth...good depth and structure...great all on its own...tasty, simple, and budget-friendly.”

  • 3+ Stars / Spirit of Wine

    “Far richer, bolder, robust and aromatic than ever imagined; they bring a big, burly, fresh, velvet-based style that feels slightly sweet and plenty rich on the palate, showing figs and red berries. Nice slow fade to a clean, creamy finish. Big best value.”

  • 86 Points / Intoxicology Report

    “Plush and intricate, with layers of black cherry, cassis and wild berry framed by spice and delicate tannins.”

  • Unfiltered, Unfined

    “An inexpensive, crowd-pleasing red. There are elements of black raspberry and plum on the nose. The texture is classically smooth and plush, with rich dark chocolate and red fruit flavors.”

  • Wine Chixs

    “A sultry Merlot with characteristics of dried berries and a hint of mint. Earthy and rich, this wine has a long, flavorful finish.”

  • Examiner.com

    “Earthy and nicely intense with smooth, soft tannins on a long somewhat spicy finish.”

  • 85 Points / Ken's Wine Guide

    “This ruby colored Merlot opens with a mild red currant and gentle black cherry bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with hints of sour cherry, black pepper, cranberry and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and mild tannins stick around for a little bit.”
