All things considered, this is a fantastic wine for the price ($5 from Trader Joe's). Dark and smoky, with a nice kiss of oak on the nose and finish. Smooth and well-balanced, there is little to fault here for a $5 bottle. Is this my favorite wine in the world? No, it's not. It is one of my favorite wines on a cost-per-ounce scale? Yes, it is! If you can find this wine for $7.50 or less, buy it by the case. I did.
