I found this to be a really impressive bargain for a sub-$10 bottle of wine. In fact, it needs a lot of air. Day 1 is was good but it was at Day 3 that it showed best. Dark, tart brambles, pomegranate, sumac, and even a little lemon citrus. Very impressive actually. Give this air and it will reward you.

Abundance of fruit. Tastes like a primitivo... from the west. Really good.

Nose is blackberry with a hint of menthol. On the palate you get strawberry, oak, cedar, and sage. Chewy tannins and moderate acid in the finish. A brawny wine that would hold up to a steak nicely.
