My Rating 91 Points.  
Price $28.

Dark, dirty ruby in color with a purplish dark rim.

Fruity on the nose with cherries, currants, wild flowers, vanilla, coke, licorice, pencil lead, leather, earth, minerals and black pepper. A great inviting nose.

Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, red currants, blueberries, vanilla, wood, earth, licorice, pencil lead, forest floor and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with smooth, full tannins, spices and tart cherries.

What a Great red wine this is. Great by itself or with Italian food. A Nice, inexpensive Amarone look alike.
