It's only wine but I like it

Cab-Merlot-Syrah blend. Quite dry, with notes of dried sour cherries, black tea and herbs. Solid, dry finish with some tannin noted but not obtrusive. Quite a nicely made wine, my only minor quibble being that it lacks a bit of regional character. Picked up on sale at $15.25. a good value at that price. Tasted Dec 2013.
