A well-made if unexciting red.
Very dark violet-tinged ruby. Direct, very clean nose of tangy blackberry fruit, stony minerals, and sweet cream. Richly fruity, with gobs of dark berry fruit with a slight dark chocolatey component. Lots of fine-grained tannin. Good clean finish. If this description sounds good, then I guess my lack of enthusiasm is that this wine simply lacked a sense of place; there certainly was nothing wrong with it. B. Imported by Douglas Skopp Selections. Was about $14 at Spec's.
