Thought I buy it since it was cheap. Wasn't really expecting much but it turn out to be good

Has a deep ruby color when poured. Not much on the nose but medium bodied on the palette. Spicy on the palette with a lingering finish. Great value for the price. Would recommend.

Deep and dark with heavy tannins. Always a nice choice.

Someone said I should try n gave me 2012 bottle. Really 1st "cheap" wine Ive found that I enjoyed enough to buy again! LOTS of Dark fruit, very smooth, earthy vanilla finish. Easy tannins. Friends enjoyed it too.
