The earthy and leafy aromas are akin to Chilean Merlot. The plum flavors are attractive but there's also an indistinct berry/tomato taste that lowers the bar. A smooth, round, carefree wine better geared to casual parties than contemplative sipping.
It smells of apple pie, pears and spearmint. Tastes of pineapple, green apple and oak. Some residual sugar lends a fruit-cocktail element to a wine that shows its best when well chilled. As it warms up it begins to get sticky on the palate.
Drinks hot and fruity, with the flavors of spiced blackberry punch. It’s not the most delicate wine to ever come down the pike, but it is dry, rich and tasty, with that big, bright, jolting fruitiness that only warm sun can make.
Dark color. Decent aromas of berries and earth, and the flavors are proper, although thin. Seems to have a bit of sweetness to it, almost Port-like. Not a lot going on, but you can serve it at anonymous cocktail parties.
