Review: ***+ $$ Shebang Red Wine Eighth Cuvee, California, non-vintage = GOOD VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Shebang Red Wine Eighth Cuvee.

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.
