This wine with animals on the label (I detest animals on wine labels) is made worse by the fact that the animals are wearing sunglasses for Pete’s sake. Despite the stupid label and name, the wine is an intense ruby with a light but pleasant green pepper nose with a touch of strawberries.
This wine is made in the fruit forward, typical new world-pop style that appeals to many of today’s wine drinkers. A lot of people will like this wine even though it is just your basic pop wine, unremarkable, not typical of the Merlot grape and a little tannic. But, in fairness, it is an enjoyable enough wine if you just want some “wine” and aren’t looking for anything special or memorable. Raise a glass if you want–seeing impaired animals not withstanding. Around $8 I believe.
