Ruby in color with medium intensity.

On the nose, blueberries, cherries, strawberries, wood, earth and spices.

Dry on the palate with light cherries, strawberries, black pepper, earth and forest floor.

Medium bodied with nice legs.

Medium finish with big, powerful tannins.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

To me it felt too light and watery. Drinkable but bland. Not my taste.

Raspberry/cherry syrup, white flowers, game/smoke, stem, a hint of wood. Very good for $12 at Costco.

Good. Not more, not less. Nothing to get exited about. Getting slightly better after two days open.
