Deep ruby in colour, there is a clear blackcurrant aroma. This is a very smooth wine, simple in taste of light blackcurrent and oak. It is remarkably uncomplex, yet has the roundness you might expect from a better wine. It is a perfect cheap drinking wine, or used as a ubiquitous red wine for meal times, just because you want wine with your meal. This wine is so cheap that you can forgive its shortcomings; and those shortcomings would be forgiven even if it was twice the price.
Its lightness makes it suitable for drinking on its own, at a party say, or alongside hams or stews, so it is a very versatile wine.
Again, for £2.99 this wine is amazing, and could easily pass for a wine four times the price. It is eminently drinkable, not just for parties but also with a meal and friends.
