Dense nose of dark plum and black currants
Full bodied and firmly textured on the palate
Slightly rustic finish but also richly layered with currants, blackberries, tar, and spice
I summarized this wine in my notes as: a good value wine, strong personality, slightly rustic, and flavorful. It had been several years since I tasted this wine, and I'm impressed with this 2009 offering. At $11 or so, stock up. And raise a glass!
