We thoroughly enjoyed this wine! Pouring it into the glass the legs lingered along the sides and the delectable aromas included dark berry, earth, purple plum and cherry. On the palate, there were intense notes of cherries and vanilla spice. The finish was semi-dry and smooth with mild tannins and acidity.

The 2017 (13.5% alc.) is an easy to drink wine with a dark ruby red color in the glass. There are aromas of earth, spice and black fruit. The wine has a smooth taste of ripe fruits and toast, with light tannins and just the right amount of acidity.
The grape varietals used to produce this pleasant-drinking wine include Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Educated Guess 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was purchased based on...an educated guess. I was searching for a Cabernet to serve with beef tenderloin for an upcoming dinner party. The label intrigued me and when I read that it was a Napa Cab, I decided I couldn't go wrong. I'm glad my 'educated guess' was correct - this is a great Cabernet for the price.
Villa Pozzi Nero d'Avola is a red wine from Sicily, Italy. We have been enjoying Nero d’Avola winesfor some time now because they're so drinkable, approachable and food friendly. It’s a nice alternative to a Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, or Merlot and has a lighter mouthfeel. Besides, it's a delicious, underrated wine for less than $10.
