Delicious with our steak dinner! Probably one of the best pairings we've had! Had steak with homemade herb truffle butter mushrooms and onions, mashed sweet potatoes, roasted Parmesan asparagus with a sweet spinach salad mmmmmm!

Trader Joe's, ~$7

Dark and opaque and a pungent smoky nose with a hint of fruit. Smooth but fairly full bodied and syrupy, on the tart and dry side but not in a bad way, has a decent alcohol bite. Starts with a pleasant slightly tart red fruit flavor, and a noticable smokiness follows shortly after giving a nice complexity to keep it interesting. Loved the mix of smoke and tart fruit in the flavors, if it was a little less harsh and tart it would be amazing but can't complain at all for the price. One of my favorites at this price point.
