WineO Mark Review

For under $10 at Aldi, this wine is a unique choice for those red wine drinkers that want a simple, easy drinking, and fruity California red. 

This wine has an enticing aroma of dark plums, ripe black cherries, tobacco, toasty oak, and dried herbs.

This is a medium to full-bodied wine that’s well-rounded smooth, and bold. It has a great complexity of flavors making it rich, and smokey caramel, and gives off a warm finish. You can taste the black cherries, blackberry jams, vanilla, dried herbs, and toasted oak with hints of baking spices.

Overall this wine tastes like a jammy California Zin, but is elevated by a warm and spiced undertone from the charred bourbon barrel. At under $10, it has a solid QPR.
