This wine is clear and medium purple in color.
Wine comes off clean with medium intensity aromas. Aromas consists of dark fruits such as plum and blackberry followed by hints of licorice and oak.
This is a dry wine with medium acidity. The tannin level is medium plus. The flavor profile follows the nose with black fruits, plum, blackberry and black cherry. The finish is medium in length and leaves the black pepper zing and oak on the palate. Definitely a full-bodied drinking experience.
For the price point, you definitely get a great value for the flavor profile and complexity level. Could it age a little more, probably to soften it up, but it is a perfect full wine for those on a budget!
Food – Cheeses, Red Meats, Mushroom Dishes

Purple-colored, the nose offers up plum and black cherry notes with a touch of black pepper. The palate is soft and round with ripe, saturated berry flavors. Finishes spicy and full with chewy tannins.
