Dark purple with ruby highlights, aromas of wildflowers mingled with fresh blueberries. Plush blackberry and cherry flavors crammed the medium to full body, although not on the sweet side of fruity. The emphasis is really on the spiciness, lots of bold crushed black peppercorn. There’s enough berry juiciness and soft tannins to round out the flavor and add balance. It’s a wonderful, straightfoward wine great on its own or with spicy dishes. I’ll supplement my comments with the fact that every time I buy this wine, either the sommelier type person or the checkout person will inevitably tell me what a phenomenal deal this bottle is, and how other customers have been raving about it.
