This is exactly like bordeaux, but a littler brighter and smoother. Strawberry and raspberry on the nose, mocha, earth and tobacco on the palate with a decent finish. Tannins are really tight this wine screams for a nice juicy steak no Italian dishes...if this was a blind taste i'd swear this was bordeaux.
What a wine, bought at local store for dinner. Paired with steak and vegetable kabobs...this is a no brainer the wine had a nose of subtle spices and cherry on the palate good body and structure and nice finish. At $10 bucks this is a home run. Bring this to the next bbq and you will be a hero!
