Modestly sour, with some sweetness, and a bit of smoke and vegetal flavors, plus a dash of iron. Medium bodied and fairly mild. Enjoyable and well worth the $9 I spent for a liter.
I came across a wine word the other day that I will use to describe this: quaffable. Yes, this is a quaffable wine. It is light and fruity, with a pleasant dash of sourness. It doesn't have much body to it, but it does go down easy. It is a good party wine (which is where I had it, at a party) because most people will like it and it won't distract people from their conversations.
Four and a half glasses

Deliciously fruity and quaffable, this liter bottle is perfect for parties. This red wine is full of soft and approachable black fruits, with subtle tannins and a hint of zesty minerality on the finish.
