Gorgeous, gorgeous red wine!  From the pop of the cork, till we drained every last drop out of the bottle... completely delicious. Thank you!   -18 Points

The strong scents of oak in this wine are very misleading. I thought my first sip would be a oak flavor, but it was so smooth and fruit flavorful. I loved this wine, and I'm sure it will be gone before I get my  next shipment.    -19 Points
