What a great looking bottle of Wine--nice and smooth--a nice red blend. As a former Phantom pilot and holder of four DFC's, I have found the only bottle that I love the looks and the taste of---and I will spread the word to all of my many fighter-pilot friends! It is also note-worthy that you donate a portion of sales to children of wounded and deceased veterans---thank you
