Pours with a bold, dark purple hue right to the rim, with aromas of musty sweet red berry with a candied nuance.
Palate--unremarkable first impression structurally but pleasant fruit, of a gentle nature, a mellow foundation, and finishes quickly.
Having never heard of this wine and the label being of little help, I cannot find anything out about this wine on the internet. I am curious who makes it, what grapes are used and where in France it hails from. Strange!
I paid $7 for this TRader Joe's offering and perhaps it is made exclusively for them, I don't know. At any rate it is unremarkable, underwhelming, and yet drinkable. At $7--and not a penny more--it's okay.
