Perfect ending! At first it looked like grape Koolaid popsicle, but the cherry and merlot tastes came through. Sheer delight, this can also be used as a palate cleanser. Use a good merlot because you will taste the difference. Thanks for sharing, Smellyvegetarian! Made for The Wild Bunch of ZWT8 for its trip to Australia/NZ.
