Very opaque purple.  Nose of blackberry, oak and plum purée.  The palate is nothing what I was expecting.  Lush, but lithe with dark blackberry pie notes, loads of acidity with some very fine grained tannins.  The mid palate exudes smoothness with more dark fruit compote, a small dose of wood and very drinkable tannins/acidity.  The finish is rather dry with some plums appearing amongst the dark berries.  I also come away with mocha, tobacco and a touch of jam. 90 points and 5 stars for this $11 wine.  Salut….
