Really nice everyday red blend. A little jammy w ripe dark fruits and a touch of leather and tannin.

Our cork was compromised, but I remember really liking this last time, so I will rate high.

Delicious, deep red, berry fruity cut with a bit of leather/tobacco. At $20 it’s a terrific table wine to bring to an intimate potluck.
