It's the second time I've purchased this wine - the first was a random pick up to complement a Costco pizza and unfortunately wasn't equipted to blog about it. It's a top notch, rich red wine that A Wine A Week readers need to try. I'll rate it a 7 out of 10 and suggest you give it a go. $12 from Costco.
Smoky, spice and everything nice. You'll really notice the strong tobacco flavors. Black cherry and slight vanilla. Great with food or for sippin' - excellent immediately upon uncorking. This bold wine will overshadow most food, so best to pair with your average pasta or grilled meat meal.
One warning, it does bring the dreaded purple teeth...so keep wiping!
