Warning: stay away.

You may see a big display of this as you walk into one of their stores but the name is all marketing hype.

It's a fairly light fruit bomb without any backbone or much of a finish. My wife thought it tasted like Robitussin. I thought it had a little cherry Luden's cough drop thing going. Maybe a light dessert wine. It has no cabernet character and you would be hard pressed to identify the varietal if you tasted it without seeing the label.

You could do much better than this for $15. No doubt TJ's is trying to compete with the Costco Kirkland Signature wines which have fared much better.
