Ripe blackberry, cherry and cassis aromas greet the senses with a touch of tobacco leave, thyme and sage. Bold flavors echo the aromas, with a touch of black currant and molasses. The wine finishes with vibrant acidity, with sweet black fruit flavors and dusty tannins.
Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 2% Syrah

Buyer beware! It is always a risk buying such heavily discounted wines. This wine is a parody of what I consider to be California or new world wines: masses of over-ripe fruit with an astringent aftertaste. The latter, I assume, comes from the alcohol content: 16.9%! It's criminal to make a table wine like this. This is really port, but without the sweetness, the finesse or balance.
