Not bad, plenty of flavour in a rustic way.

Herbal, slightly perfumed nose. Medium-full bodied, savoury with some sweet/sour dark fruit, Tannic, good acidity, fairly balanced. Maybe a bit too much upfront wood.

Will cut though hearty food and big flavours.

A fine everyday wine at a decent price, but nothing interesting here.

Would probably not bother buying this again.

I agree with the other user review. This well-priced wine was recommended by my brother in law from Calgary. Clearly he is not blessed with the other nice under $15 offerings from the LCBO!! This wine is very drinkable, but nothing special.
