Score: 6.5 – Good Drop/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/4dc/16438419/files/2015/01/img_0655.jpg

Price: $9.99

About the Wine: The Negromaro grape is aptly named as it is black in the glass and can be really fruit forward. The nose on this wine features dark berry and tree fruits and perhaps a little spice but not much more. The flavour reflects the nose but also shows a touch of leather and vanilla. This is medium weight wine with a soft texture. The finish is simple and juicy. All in all when you consider the price and the quality this is a pretty good drop.

Value: This is a very straightforward wine meant to appeal to a broad collection of palates and at this it price punches over its weight and would be my choice of $10-$11 California or Argentine wines that also feature black fruits and depth of colour (Zinfandel, California Shiraz, Malbec).

Added Value: To me this wine is well suited to Comfort Foods. Ordering in Pizza? Having a grilled cheese or meat loaf. This is where this wine has added value.

Service: No need to let this breathe, just twist the cap off and let it flow.
