This was tasted blind with a monthly tasting group.  It came in first place.  When we did a similar tasting a few years back, it also came in first place.  While, I did not have it in first place, it is an excellent wine and a great value.  A Kermit Lynch import.  Purple in color, slightly flat.  The nose is very fresh.  Cherries, slight root beer and the slightest bit of volatile acidity.  It has a wonderful texture on the palate.  Black raspberry fruit.  Firm tannins.  Nice depth although tight.  A long finish.  This drinks great on its own and will work with heavier meats or fowl.  This may get better but either way, it should be good for a decade.
