Has a lot of mineral characteristics, very dark color almost plum like. Has a Pinot like flavor qualities, but still rich texture and finishes very dry.

Got this at Sprouts for about $10. Very drinkable for weekday dinners.

Dark inky in color, almost black with a dark purple rim.

Dark berries on the nose with black pepper,minerality ,green pepper and spices.

Medium bodied and harsh on the palate with blackberries, currants, peppercorn and some cloves.

Medium long finish with spices and full tannins.

Needs a while to open up.
Not more than ok, but still balanced and drinkable.

This was horrible, not sure what happened to this bottle, maybe it had been mishandled. Not drinkable
