We found this red wine at Safeway for about $9.
It proved to be a nice surprise, showing currants, plums, and a little earth.
Alone, it was a bit much, as it has a detectable alcohol ester. (The bottle says it is 14.5%, which is potent!)
But, paired with cheese and roasted vegetables, it was quite tasty. (Rating ***1/4)
