Smooth, better nose than taste. Good value for every day table wine.

Dark inky in color, almost black with a dark purple rim.

Dark berries on the nose with black pepper,minerality ,green pepper and spices.

Medium bodied and harsh on the palate with blackberries, currants, peppercorn and some cloves.

Medium long finish with spices and full tannins.

Needs a while to open up.
Not more than ok, but still balanced and drinkable.

The great every day drinking wine. It has a little bit of spice, and goes down smoothly. Great price, typically $10.99
