Aaron: Teri’s assessment that this is an “everyday” wine is pretty spot on. There was strawberry licorice and other hard candies on the nose with some medicinal herbs as well.  The flavor was extremely fruity with some mild tannins.  This wasn’t exceptional but was more than just juice.  Not my favorite but easy to grab off the wine rack in a pinch.  89 points

Teri: This is a great everyday drinking read with a spicy nose but a fruity flavor. I tasted strawberry and cherry with subtle underlying hints of spice. Overall light but good body. 90 points
