This wine, which I find in Boston routinely for less than 8$ is one of my favorite bargain wines. It is solid garnet with a big bouquet of dried cherries, and dusty fruit with notes of anise.
In the mouth this wine is big on flavor though a bit tart (acidic) at first with steely notes, rigid tannins and a bit tight all around.
With a half hour of air the flavors are big with a core of solid uncomplicated fruit on a slightly sweet palate of cranberry and dried cherries. At $6 which is what I paid on sale, I would buy up more! Raise a glass.
*This wine has been reviewed by me which you can read at the Sept. 10 post; the Jan. 15 post and (NW) reviewed it Feb. 5 all in 2006.
