You Are Not Going To Hate This Wine

Light, clear ruby with wide garnet edges.  Massive tar, muddy road and bright cassis dominate the nose on initial, and takes its time breathing out to rich licorice and chocolate.  A nice briar/euc never goes away, just streamlines itself deep into the nose.  Ripe and round, with grainy minerality pulsing through it.  I could not RESIST this thing for 12$ and honestly it is head-and-shoulders above a PLETHORA of 20-30$ BDX I have experimented with over the years.  But that is not a rousing endorsement!  In the mouth, fairly hollow.  Def ME.  Fruit bitter and vapid.  Crisp Granny-smith with just hints ate ripeness.  Slight burn.  This lil thing has a whole lot going for it and holy shit for 12 bucks!  you could easily spend double that on a CA cab and have drain-food.  It is easy to pick apart, but I’m calling it a deal.
