Black fruit, licorice, cola and chocolate aromas cover the bases. The palate is full, sweet and saturated, with a slight syrupy feel and bold blackberry, blueberry and mocha flavors. Sweet on the finish, with vanilla, coffee and a small wash of herbal green; 60% Bonarda/40% Malbec.
For a $5 wine, it offers pretty good red berry aromas along with a decent mouthfeel and proper acidity. The palate pops with red plum and raspberry flavors along with mild stalky, brambly notes that are more in the background than up front. Not overwhelming but doesn’t disappoint.
Sweet and a little chemical smelling, with stemmy, citrusy red fruit flavors. The palate is light and narrow, with heat. Short on the finish and not what you’d call surprising, but given the $7 price tag it is not a bad wine.
