The suggested retail price is $7.99/750 ml and $12.99/1 liter.

If Sweet White Roo is the peppy sister to Sweet Red Roo, [yellow tail]'s Big Bold Red is the life of the party. This wine bursts with flavors of very ripe crushed raspberries and strawberries and a hint of vanilla. Shake some pepper on the steak and hit the grill while enjoying this bold red.
