There were powdered cocoa, plum and spice in the aromas. On the palate I tasted lots of lush berry fruit, dark chocolate and oak. This wine was full-bodied, with a lush texture, soft tannins and a medium-length aftertaste.
It wasn't shy by any means. It comes right out and introduces itself to you!
Several reviewers on Cellar Tracker complained about a high alcohol level. I could feel it but taste or aroma-wise, I did not think it was overpowering as some others felt.
For $11.49 from Costco, I'd say this wine has very good QPR. Two thumbs up.
