Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid pallet the wine has some mild fruit flavors, cassis and some earthy flavors. On the finish the wine has some nice dryness and tannins well in check. For the price this wine is quite complex. It builds nicely in the mouth! I would give it an 88-89. For the money a very nice wine.
