Dark, spicy, inky, well mellowed.
This wine for $12.99 in Vancouver,BC is a steal; given our LDB markup on wines of !70 %...there isn't much for under $13. Air for a couple of hours, refrigerate for 1 and 1/2 hrs.(to bring it back down to cellar temp). A bit chunky, ripe spicy flavors with a medium finish, a good everyday pour. It has more character than a Cotes-du-Rhone Villages which is similar in price.
Three and a half glasses
