This is a really good bottle of wine and for $20, it is a great value. We opened a few of these for our Passover Seder, but I would happily drink this Bordeaux blend any time. Purple in color. The nose has black raspberries, cherries, slight coffee and spice. On the palate, this is medium bodied. Light tannins. The black raspberries and cherries carry thru. Some underlying spice as well. Good balance. Nice finish. This works with a wide variety of food. Tasty. Seems like it should easily do five more years. It probably won't get better though.
