Purple in color with ruby swirls.  The nose is dusty warm with plums and red berries.  On the palate, there is a nice chocolate dust quality to this along with some plums and black cherries.  Tart acidity which works well (almost in a Barbera way).  Some firm tannins.  This wine is quite food friendly and while different, certainly it would please most tastes.  $23 is a nice value for this wine.  A few steps up from the basic level Baco Noir they make and about the same pricing.
