The Seeker wines are a brand of Kobrand. The introductory page says, “You are a Seeker. You invite the Unknown to share a bottomless carafe – and sometimes two. You long for whirring machines of flight and fancy. With the wind in your hair and the uncharted ahead, you command the helm.” and continues on in this vein. It lists wines, one country per varietal, all under this label.
This effort shows sweetly ripe, fruity flavors of black cherry / kirsch, black and red raspberries, and a little dark spice. It’s delicious and flavorful, but not very substantial. While I’ll give it Thumbs Up because the wine is in fine shape and it has flavors I like a lot, $4 or maybe $5 seems like a better price for what this is.
