A heavy chateauneuf - alot of syrah. Sweet, dark berry nose with an odd plum note that dissipates. Charred meat notes. Unctuous on palate (again, syrah). Well made.

Great value at 19.99 Picked up some smoked meats, damp mulch, finishing with fresh tannins red berries like cranberry and a medium to full body Would buy again at this price point
