Intense berry aroma. Smooth, coat-your-tongue taste. Pretty darn good considering how cheap it was. It's not particularly complex though.

Needed to sit, but beautiful flavor. Inky.

Easily top 10 best inexpensive wines I've ever had. The wine has a nice weight on the tongue and is really loaded with fruit flavors including blackberry and ripe plum. Nice subtle tannic finish. The wine lacks depth and complexity but for under $10, the value is considerable. #qprsuperstar

Flavors of cassis and raisins at first, then musky, unfinished basement. Incredibly smooth. The nose in the glass has deep notes of cigar and the woods at dusk, which reminds me of fly fishing, but above the glass it's noticably sweeter, with oatmeal and plumb, and other notes that are harder to describe. Like wandering in the dark.
