"Great color, extraction and overall balance for an under-$15 wine. There's slam-bang dark fruit, good mouthfeel, tightness and serious but controlled tannins. Oak plays its role on the back palate and finish, and in the end the wine is as savory and balanced as it is bold and fruity. Drink now thruogh 2010." 90 Points,
At a reasonable price, this wine makes a perfect "to the party" entree or enjoy at home with almost any meal not featuring fish or chicken.
