On the suggestion of one of the wine guys at Total Wine, I decided to pick this up.  This wine is very dry, but does have some very concentrated dark fruit mixed up with cocoa and a little spice at the end of this.  This is a wine that needs to be decanted first, giving it at least an hour to truly open up. The color is a nice deep purple, the weight average for a red wine and the finish last for around thirty seconds.

It's not a bad wine and something that could do with a nice steak, maybe one with a pepper crust.
