Jammy blackberry flavors.
I hadn't heard of the wine when I decided to try it, was a little nervous that it wouldn't be great since the price was $13 at the Wine Bistro (Columbus OH). It was very well rounded no spikey notes, deep, plush, but not so smooth as to be "wimpy". Nice dark plum, berry fruit on top of moderate woody, earthiness. I considered it a "find".
