I'm not sure what the price on this one was in the tasting room, but I do recall it was in the $10 range.
A funky nose – carob and rotten raspberry.
Smooth, easy drinking, but by no means dumb – a nice fuzziness, some cherry, cedar, chocolate, tobacco, and surprisingly pronounced tannins.
Some nice herbal notes come through on the finish with some chocolate and raspberry.
This is pretty damn good – it's perhaps not the most complex wine on the planet, but for the price, it's solid – earthy, fruity, well balanced, and interesting enough to get a solid recommendation.
