This is an excellnet blend of syrah, carbernet sauvignon and merlot, from Spain with testes of berries, fruits. Aromatic, and smooth. Goes well with lamb, roast beef, stew and BBQ ducks.
It is light to medium-bodied and easy to drink. I consdier this a rare find at the prict it is being offered. I really like it. i will buy it again, by the case. Excellent price/perforance ratio. I thoroughly enjoy drinking this wine. It is smooth and flavourable. like it a lot.

Feb '11. Rich deep colour with a purple sheen,probably looked inky 6 yrs ago. Mocha Mole Frappacino wafting out of the glass, with traces of date or dried blackberry. Moderate dried fruit on the front palate. tannin and acid have probably weakened over time as they are perceived to be low, with a high alcohol finish that dominates. Still somewhat interesting. Probably peaked as a full bodied bbq steak wine in 09. Drink it now.
