Light purple, medium opacity. A nose of black currants and cedar shavings. On the palate- plums, blackberry, fig paste, iodine. Very nice mouthfeel, not overly tannic but a touch dry with low acidity and a decent finish. 89 points and a sure 5 stars for this $7 stunner, buy it by the case for short term cellaring and enjoy at it parties, barbies and with pretty much anything from the grill. Salut….
