It's not the best, but if looking for a cheap bottle, it'll do. Dry but not as exciting as others.

Deep bright purple with clear rim and medium tears wo staining. Soft cherry and subtle wood (chips?). Raging tannins balanced with plum/cherry and dark chocolate sweetness, medium acid, and hidden alcohol. Black pepper? medium smooth finish. Balanced. Not delicious, but certainly drinkable.

Really enjoyable for the price. Almost too light, but totally drinkable. A great weeknight wine.

Much better, but not sure if only by comparison. A little dry without much flavor to support it, but a good stone fruit taste.
