Nice value here.  This drinks cooler climate in style.  Purple in color.  The nose has nice cherries and dark cherries with baking spices and sandalwood.  On the palate, this has decent acidity.  The cherry flavors carry thru along with some cola notes.  At under $20 per bottle, this is easy to gift or drink at a party and yet, interesting.  I would like to taste this in a warmer vintage to see how it compares.
