For those of you who love big, jammy wines, this one is for you. It was a wine club selection in either 2010 or 2011, I can't remember for sure. Right after that, it went viral and you could buy it anywhere and everywhere, so we stopped carrying it as we could not compete with the large box store's volume pricing.
The state of NC has ruled that everyone pays the same price, no matter what volume you sell of a product, which has helped us in some ways. Some prices have gone up, some have gone down. At least we are all on the same playing field now.
This deeply colored red red blend is bursting with black fruit flavor and notes of smoky earthiness. Aromas of coffee are evident and the smooth finish creates an easy drinking wine. California.
Price $18.99/Today $17.09/WCM $14.24
