This wine has a lovely deep ruby color in the glass, and a nose that is a wonderful blend of jammy fruit, black cherries, currant, anise and somewhat of a sour twang, suggesting that the sweet fruit might be well balanced by acidity. The taste is an explosion of fruit in your mouth, with rich ripe berries, yet the acidity of some sour cherry notes really balance the fruit mid-palate. The finish is quite smooth, yet it has a wonderful woodsy sort of taste on the finish, which again is a surprising counterbalance to the rich fruit.

Earth & Spicy
Delicious rich ripe plum, caramel and smoke make this memorable and delicious. I will be buying again!
Smooth & Supple
Crazy good wine for the money. Super ripe black and red berries with just a touch of savory spice with good smooth finish. Buy more than one.
