Spicy, dusty, juicy. Decent complexity for the price but there is a touch to be desired on the nose and finish.

Can't figure out why I bought this other than maybe it has some Alicante in it. More than summer VA, but I drank it all up so it must not be that bad

Zin, alacante buche. Petite Syrah, Malbec, probably a handful of others. For its price point it's great for a full bodied red.

Deep, dark fruit with a hint of juicy sweetness -- I compared it to a dark chocolate-covered orange wedge. One day later and a whole bunch of smoky spice came to the foreground.

I mean it's a wine built from the Alicante Bouschet grape so your guess is as good as mine...

A lot of fruit but not super sweet (tart instead). Would probably be good with a meal but just ok on its own.
