Original tasting and review : This is Shebang Red Wine Eighth Cuvee, California, non-vintage, finished at 14.2% alcohol and first sampled immediately upon purchase in January, 2015.
In the glass: Deep magenta.
On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows deep, dusty purple merlot fruit. From the aroma, seems like this will be rich and bold.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft, furry, sweet and reasonably bold with fruit, yet still sporty some heft tannins. Yummy in a pizza-friendly way.
In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for furry depth. Good value.
