Okay, so I don't drink coffee in the morning, and rarely drink it at all. However, I was turned onto this wine, and while it has some medium tannins that make it a little rough, this wine contains both a plum jam component and the finest dusting of cocoa on it. While not full bodied, allowing it to sit for a few minutes truly brings out the flavor. The downside is it contains sulfites, but I am also interested to know what it's blended with, I am thinking a little Carmenere.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
