Something I picked up, I have seen this brand and bottle for several months now and finally decided to give it a go.  If you look at the label, there is definitely some type of demon adorning the label, and when you just get a little bit of this in your mouth, you instantly think of something good that they might drink in hell.  I get leather, a chewy-ness, deep spice and a little bit of bite to this one.

The color is a nice deep dark purple and if you look at it too much, you'll probably lose just a little bit of your soul, if not start to become decadently corrupted.  On the other side of the flavor profile, you get some intense deep red plums with the slightest aspect of blackberries.

This wine is great, and perfect with some spicy meats.  I would recommend you try this one before its gone.
