Despite the Kermit Lynch endorsement, we found this wine close to undrinkable. Dark, dense, octopus black-ink color. Very closed showing more bramble than berry. Sharp, narrow and tannic in the mouth. Think chunky. The finish is more a punch than a sweet kiss goodbye. Given the plethora of drinkable, fun, food friendly wines under $20.00, this wine should be pushed to the back of the shelf. Pick any region of the world and you'll find at least 10 other choices that should be put ahead of the list.
Smooth and quite restraint. Quite the opposite when tasted 2 years ago. Aroma and flavour profiles are similar with dark fruits (blackcurrants, black cherries, plum), oak and earthy spice. Medium bodied, well integrated tannins and alcohol. Good balance.
