    Winemaker's Notes:

    An intense, inky red, the Nero d'Avola seductively reveals a gorgeous perfume of blackberry liqueur, white flowers, vanilla, and a hint of figs delivered in a leather basket. On the palate, this wine is opulent, full-bodied, and viscous, with a great intensity, superb purity, and a layered, seamless personality that would convince most tasters that this is New World personified.

    A balances expression of Nero d'Avola with the dark fruit and raisiney nuances I expect from this wine. A nice value too!

    This is an easy drinking red that is great as a dinner wine. It has a nice fruity body and is just bold enough to keep your interest. It will be one of my favorites.

    This is another wine I tried simply because the varietal was new to me. My initial impression was negative. It started with a bitter tannin kick and then disappeared. I had a glass, put the rest in the 'fridge, and used some for meatballs. I tried it the next night cold. This made a huge difference. This (red) wine should be tasted cold. It has a reasonably complex flavor with some noticeable fruit - mostly blackberries. It started off smooth and light and stayed that way. As a chilled beverage, this is a great choice. This is a wine to drink cold on a hot summer picnic. At $10, it is as cheap as some wine coolers or Sangria. The wine is a far better choice as a beverage by comparison. I give it 3 stars accordingly. If you want a Cabernet with your steak for dinner, this isn't your wine. Chilled, it makes for a light, tasty by-the-pool sort of beverage.

    This is an easy drinking wine that has enough body to stand up to spicy foods. It's also smooth enough to drink alone. Has a nicely sweet finish.
