Loved the berries, chocolate, smokiness and spice in this wine. Especially the smokiness... it just felt luxurious which was great given that this wine is less than $20.

We served it with homemade beef burgers flavored with garlic and horseradish and a homemade pasta salad with red chilies and goat cheese. Really lovely.
