This is all blackberry jam with a bit of brush on both the nose and palate. Certainly not complaining about the $4 price, but with next to no complexity or finish, I wasn't expecting much. Not my style of wine, but if you like it it's a bargain.
Much better than the rather bad Gruet syrah I tried recently. A well made wine, maybe not very distinctive, but it tasted like syrah, with blackberry and cassis candy flavors, maybe a little spice. I'd drink it again. 87-88
