Pretty crystalline garnet hue with aromas of rustic, “Chianti” type wine with licorice, cherry, forest floor highlights.

Palate–A touch of musty, cherry cream, with black licorice foundation, and rather pleasing “give me more” flavors that linger on the finish.

The only experience I have with Cavit wine is the generic, ultra crappy production they market widely, sell on some airlines and is major plonk.  So when I saw this non vintage “red blend” at my favorite liquor store I grabbed it to read the label.  It says it’s a blend of Torodelgo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah.  At $6 I thought I would give it a try. I actually like it!  It is reminiscebnt of Chianti even though there isn’t a drop of Sangiovese, the signature grape of Chianti in it. So I have to say, Raise a glass!
