Tolerable for the price, but I don't think I would repurchase. A little too sour for my taste. As the back of the bottle suggests, it has spicy berry overtones. A short finish. Ok if you're just looking for a cheap, red generic wine to go with almost anything, that's not outright bad. Heavily mineral, with notes of black pepper, blackberry, and sour plum.
