This dry red wine is moderately priced, - around $15 CND, yet what a blast! For those who likes well bodied, heavy and spicy wines,- it is just piece of heaven. It's not vulgar unlike Australian shirazes and very elegant in bouquet. It has very strong plum nose, dark ruby colour and deep hint of chocolate and blueberries. Very intense and rewarding vine, strongly recommended ! That day this went crazy well with potato & portobello & chicken oven roasted pita and gorgonzolla spiced zucchini pancakes ! Holy shit !
