Purchased from Costco, $14.99

Aaron: Huge is the best way to describe this bottle.  The smell was enormous, featuring some spice with red berries.  The flavor was nice but very spicy – think chili peppers.  There was no cream and this was a bit harsh but honestly, in a good way.  There were solid tannins and a full flavor.  Don’t drink this to be refreshed, but as a standalone or pairing with an intense meal, go for it.  90 points

Teri: Paired with a beautiful dark purple color and medium legs, Oliverhill’s Red Silk carries a full robust flavor that is surprisingly smooth. The chunky tannins smooth out to a rich flavor of dark berries, licorice, and some oak. 92 points
