Simple, cheap, correct. In light of some of the horrid cheap stuff around, it's good to see that the bottom end can provide the odd wine worth the time and the dime (cheap is often really bad value!). Light cola, cherry, animal hide and red fruits - surprisingly well balanced with nice palate spread. A mid-weight crowd pleaser, this has reasonably concentrated fruit, and lovely blood-adobe-iron hybrid earthiness. Good mouthfeel and very elegant.
