This was a good buy in a gutsy, blue-collar red.
Eye: Dark ruby with purple highlights.
Nose: Earthy plum juice with a stony note.
Mouth: Chunky and ripe, with low-ish acidity and some tannin that was just north of soft. Full-bodied, with a slightly hot finish. Not complex at all, but a fair amount of flavor for the buck.
Cellar or drink? Drink over the next 6-9 months.
Price/store: Was about $8 or $9 at Central Market.
