The color is nice and the aromas are sweet with the essence of graham crackers. The palate is a bit leathery, with blackberry and coffee flavors emerging. Then on the back of the palate the wine gets tighter and more gritty. Here the tannins bite, although for an inexpensive drink with food it's up to the task. Best Buy. —M.S.
