Dark purple, but not as ‘heavy’ as I was expecting.  A nose of black currant and blackberry with hints of vanilla.  On the palate- really soft and supple profile that offers up delicious black fruit sorbet, juicy acidity and very fine grained tannins.  This wine makes my mouth water, it’s bizarre.  I am really enjoying it!  The mid palate is more down to earth with plain Jane blackberry and some oak.  The finish gets ramped up with the tannins that linger for a long time while more dark fruits emerge.  This is a tasty little number that begs for Osso Bucco, eggplant parm or even a hearty stew.  91 points from me and drink till 2022.  All yours for $12 which makes this a 5 star wine.  Salut….
