I picked this one up at Costco based on the price and the shelf tag.
It has a very balanced taste curve. It is very food friendly. I have not paired it with a peppered steak, as it probably will not stand up to that, but it works very well with pizza, tomato bisque, a toasted cheese sandwich and am I allowed to admit this – even with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich…
Very nice dark red in color, aromas include tobacco, cedar, black raspberry.
The flavors are not overpowering, but rather nice, and as I said, balanced with a decent finish.
The wine maker touts that it will age well. It might, but why bother as it is quite drinkable now.
