Dark ruby purple. Nose and medium-bodied palate of red plum, sweet cranberry, and rose. Medium minus tannins are most assertive on the back palate and finish which adds a slight earthiness. A nice alternative to Grenache or Pinot Noir when a lighter red is desired. Drink now.

This native Bulgarian variety is dark garnet purple in the glass. Nose yields violets, blueberries, and cola. The rustic medium bodied palate echoes adding red apple with fuzzy tannins (medium plus) and medium acidity surrounding it all. Medium long finish bumps up the QPR. A tasty fruity yet rustic red that will support a variety of dinner fare. Try it where you’d serve Pinot Noir or Gamay. Pork is a particular friend.

Decent [rustic] table wine @ $10 giving A+ QPR... fleshy dark inky jammy w/dark fruits, bit flabby w/med tannins, as it unwinds gives some floral & whiff of spice. Dusty & dry on finish.

Where has this wine been all my life? Love the chocolate nose and strong tannins and jam. Has a little hint of wet farm and bacon. As it opened it became even more dry and chalky. But still super delicious. Admittedly, I downed the whole bottle in one night...thanks @Byron C Mayes
