The color may be fading but this wine is still pumping out a lot of volume. The nose features earthy, meaty, raisiny aromas. In the mouth, it's syrupy and borderline sticky, with flavors of caramel, cooked berry fruits and creamy oak. Yes, it's a touch syrupy but for $12 it's bringing a lot to the table. Drink now.
