I believe this was $11 at Costco, which is tough to argue with.
Earth and chocolate on the nose.
Smooth drinking – cherry mostly with a bit of blackberry. Not much in terms of tannin but reasonably acidic background. In the 2006 regular Chianti I got some cola notes, and I'm getting them here too with a bit of root beer.
A short finish of earth with a tad of garbage.
While this is fine, I'm not convinced this is worth the extra $4 over the Chianti.
