Black Ink Red Blend

Greetings on this warm Sunday afternoon.  I'm inside beating the heat and having a glass of red - in particular a glass of Black Ink.  Love the packaging on this one.  Wonderful font used on the "Black Ink" label and a great squid on the top of the capsule.  

Too bad the wine is overly sweet.  Not much oak or tannin in this blend.  Great fruitiness, but no backbone to go with it.  With a name like Black Ink, I expected a nice dry red blend, but alas, this is a Jelly Wine.  In fact, my teeth are aching a bit after a few glasses.

So glad that there are a many many more reds out there to try, as i won't be going back for this one.
