Inky purple in color, ruby at the rim.  The nose is nice with black raspberries and black olives.  On the palate, there is some complexity here.  Juicy acidity.  Tart black cherry fruit.  Some heat.  Medium bodied.  This retails for $19 which is a very nice value.  This would work for BBQ or other bigger foods.
