I love this winery!  The juice is great and the labels remind me to not take things so seriously.  Have fun with wine - that's why we drink it... and this wine is definitely fun. It has everything I love about Merlot - plums and dark cherry and chocolate and a little vanilla = delicious!  It's not too tannic, not too acidic - just the right amount of both. This wine and a juicy, homemade cheeseburger with BBQ sauce and I'm in a very happy place.
