Outstanding wine in every way. Deep color full nose rich flavor and long finish. Just a touch of sediment. Sorry it's my last bottle.

Hesitant to post this. So good, so affordable, and so off the radar. Pay no attention to the rating: this wine is terrible.

Red raspberry and cocoa, still youthful with tannin and almost no rusting in the color. This is phenomenal.
