I figured I should try this $8 offering, I was not disappointed. Black/purple in glass it exhibited chocolate, blackberry and oak on the nose. Dark cherries and blackberry with crisp acidity and lengthy tannins followed through. Slightly over-oaked with Maraschino cherry on the mid palate. I can’t see myself buying it again, but it is a serviceable sub-$10 wine that one could quaff with ease. 85 points and technically it deserves 3 stars. Salut….
