I thought it was run of the mill. Not bad for the price but better choices available in the same price range.

What a great price for a good tasting wine. I won't try to confuse anyone with fancy wine words but if you wines under $10 then try this one, if you are experimenting with different wines and don't want to spend too much on an unknown, buy this one. You will most likely enjoy it.

Pure black color with barely discernable red around edges. Serious color is accompanied by brooding and dark nose highlighted by notes of pure bramble, fresh crushed blackberries. As it sits in the glass it evolves to savory notes of meat and mineral. In the mouth it is all encompassing, covering every inch with sheer power and depth. An almost oil-like viscosity carries the monstrous weight with elegance. The petit verdot tannins feign an attack on the whole mouth, but instead deliver firm and pleasurable grip. A wine to be put down and revisited with age and serious steak.
