This full-bodied red wine serves up an abundance of flavor for a modest price. It's an easily accessible, ripe, chunky wine with bold flavors of blackberry, chocolate and herbs. It's not what you would call an elegant wine, but this is just right for a cold December evening. Think of port without the sweetness.
