Good value, spice, dried herbs, black cherry, plum, crushed violets, leather and an earthy funk. Interesting.

Amazing value for the price, and more complex than I expected. Carignan goes through carbonic and it shows through a little bit, but you have to search for it. More pronounced herbs, chalk, and black pepper.

Kermit at Whole Foods. An interesting wine. Fruit with some acidity makes for a fine BBQ pairing.

This is one of the first bottles I bought when I became excited about wine. It needs lots more age but was fun to try. Tastes of a "classic" Kermit lynch palate, which I lack words to describe pre use my but can recognize well.
