This is a GREAT value red wine that doesn't skimp on complexity or flavor. Medium-bodied with intense flavors and a solid dose of spice. Lots of blackberries, black pepper, a slight pull from the tannins, black licorice with a balance of dried strawberry pieces, and some cooling blueberry. The acidity allows the flavors to shine. Great with barbecue meats and veggies.
