image

My Rating 86 Points. 
Price $10.

Dark purple in color with a lighter purple rim.

Fruity on the nose with dark chocolate, green pepper, blackberries, plums, dark cherries, oak, licorice, Black pepper and some funk.

Full-bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, strawberries, cherries, red currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, vegetables, spices and peppercorn.

Medium finish with spices and soft, round tannins.

This is a nice blend of 64% Malbec, 20% Syrah and 16% Bonarda from Mendoza, Argentina. Very drinkable and approachable, not fully balanced but still nice party wine at a great price.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
