Pleasantly surprised, this wine has a delicious rich flavor with lots of berry, dark cherry and chocolate notes. Nicely rounded and drinkable. I like it and think you will too.

Fresh and juicy but with a great tannic texture that gives the wine heft and seriousness. The ruby-garnet body is redolent of crushed blackberries and spice, and the terrific acidity carries these berry and red currant notes forward before the drying tannins kick in. A great value. 14% abv | $15 (sample)
