Not as refined as a northern Rhône but also no blockbuster.

Black fruit, tar, and antiseptic on the nose. Jammy and herbaceous.

Very powerful up front, then leads to a very fruity black cherry finish. Very nice bargain wine for pairing with strong flavored dishes like BBQ or rich pasta.

A Pleasant dinner wine very drinkable not too complex some nice spice aromas with stone fruit flavours. Garnet red beginnings of a brick hues.

Starts off almost pointy, with sharp fruit and some cool spice, maybe even a little acidity, but then recedes quickly, almost disappearing. Seems like it would be perfect with food, especially meaty fare. As for just drinkin', it works - it's easy and drinkable, but just not really savorable because all it really has is the front end. (Addendum: And it does seem to get better after a day or two.) I also have no idea what I'm talking about.
