Much too sweet for my taste.

Blackberry and meat juice on the nose along with a touch of pencil lead. The palate is very sweet / round with residual sugars there and a bright blackberry note. It's not jammy but there is sweet spot in there. The sweetness overthrows the acid backbone and even the subtle tannic effect in mid palate. That's too bad! I would have loved a dryer effort.

Cheap and cheerful... Like, super cheap... A 1L bottle for this price that is drinkable is a coup, but for it to actually taste pretty good is insane. Not bad at all
