rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Savour the aromas from this medium+ body Grenache. Candied fruit, red licorice, eucalyptus, mint, strawberry and cherry. This wine is juicy. Tannins evident but smooth. Tasted lovely decanted 30 minutes or more by the time I tasted. Great value at $19.95. I'm thinking BBQ crusted ribs or Prime rib beef.
rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

"Blue Collar Pinot Noir" seems like a funny name but it's fitting for this new world version of a popular old world varietal. Medium-light bodied, candied strawberry, red liquorice, with a candy (granny smith) apple on the finish. A fun crowd pleaser that drinks great on its own and would pair well with tangy bbq'd chicken and pork.
rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Very heavy (14,5% of alcohol and you can feel it). Fruit, fruit, fruit. Very very ripe almost like syrup. Not much else If you like cotton candy, this wine is for you. Not my style.
