Price: $8.99 (US)
Made in: Central Coast, California
By: Vampire Vinyeards
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Purchased for the label and subject title at Total Wine in Vegas. Mild aromas at first but they seems to get stronger with time. Wet mouthfeel with not much tannins. Light cherry taste with blackberries. Nothing bad, but a little too watered-down overall.

Rating: 2.7/5

Got this red wine at the SAQ as the wrapper around the bottle caught our eye. Had a pirate kind of feel, tied up around the neck of the bottle with an elastic. Smells like nothing at first, as really too mild. After breathing half-an-hour, it does release cherries, black berries and some mild leather. The mouthfeel is a little too tarty with the yeast. The nose started milder than the taste, but eventually beats it. Still, nothing really good, but a nice packaging. Inked blood along the cork. That’s nice.
