Score: 5.5 – Dead Average/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/4dc/16438419/files/2015/01/img_0647.png

Price: $15.99

About the Wine: The colour is on the lighter side of ruby-red while the nose shows some simple cherry and some dried herbs. The palate is pretty thin and straightforward. Flavours of sour cherry, some black pepper and violets. The finish is short and dry which means you definitely need to have food with this wine. As wine goes this is dead average. It’s fairly priced given its region and how far it has come to get here, but there are better options on the market.

Value: This wine needs food and then it can be okay, but the food should be really simple like┬ápasta with a ragu sauce. I wouldn’t be trading up from $12-$14, or down from $17-$20 for this wine.

Added Value: Where this wine could shine is with a simple dish and perhaps some comfort foods like pizza or pasta.

Service: Let it breathe for at least 20 minutes or use your Vinturi. If you don’t the tannins are going to get you.
