My buddy brought this over in November and I finally managed to open it.  When I say my buddy, he is a 6ft+ redheaded black man who is larger than life and always manages to dress or find something appropriate for every occasion.  A real hoot…

For about $11 this wine delivers the goods!  Medium purple in the glass with a nose of black currant and cola.  The initial palate gives off plum and rhubarb.  The mouthfeel is really nice with smooth tannins gliding along with some barely perceptible acidity.  The mid palate continues with the cola and currant theme that ends in a shortish finish of cherry and cola.  This is a very nice quaffing wine that I’m enjoying with dry rubbed beef ribs.  A good combo that brings out the best of the wine and the meat.  89 points all day long and 4 stars from me for its value and quality.  Salut….
