I just bought a bottle to try it some weeknight. I was expecting a so-so, everyday, low- key red. Not so! Good bouquet, and on the palate, this is a full body wine with ripe berries (definitely raspberry), depth, good tannins, and a curious finish - slightly salty (to me, that day). I think it could age some. It was great with steak. What a bargain! I've just bought more. Since this is mostly a Merlot & Cab S blend, if you prefer a more subtle, herbaceous, St. Emilion-like style, then get something else.
