bold creamy rasberry fruit, awesome complexity of flavors, loaded with berry fruits
This is a really solid bottle for $15. Lots of cherry, blackberry notes, and spice. Good balance and a creamy mouth feel. I am excited to find a bottle this good at this price point.
Dark purple color, right up to the rim. Blackberry, plum, white pepper, and vanilla on the nose. Similar notes on the palate with plum, licorice, smoke, and cracked pepper flavors. Soft tannins and medium acidity. Medium body but medium+ intensity. High, but well integrated alcohol (15%).
yes, i like it. not sure how to describe this wine. 3 1/2 of 5 stars.
