I love this wine because it's easy drinking and I wouldn't feel bad about opening a bottle of it any day or night of the week. If you run out of beer on gameday, this is the bottle of wine you reach for. If you're the type that likes to spontaneously entertain friends that drink way too much of your wine, this is a great one to keep on hand in bulk quantities. This wine is a great value as it's more complex than similar blends in the same price range, with nice fruit, oak and some peppery notes. A definite crowd pleaser that pairs well with a wide variety of foods, and drinks perfectly fine on its own.
Victor Vineyards is a really cool place in Victor, California and the people behind it are very impressive. One of the team members was actually the creator of the Bonterra label of wines and joined the Victor Vineyards team because he believed in the concept and the wines. These wines are very reasonably priced and deliver a powerful punch of flavor and character. Don't let the price tag fool you, these wines are really great to drink.

This is an everyday, very drinkable, "go to" wine. You will know you are having a nice glass of red, but you will not feel guilty that you spent too much for a wine of substance. Would I take it as a host gift to impress someone? No. Would I serve it to guests with a fall dinner? Absolutely!
