So much wine for such little dime, so to speak. Medium-full-bodied, this smooth red comes across with bright, juicy currant- and raspberry-like fruit lifted by savoury notes of tobacco, cedar, mint and spice, with a whiff of charred oak in the second act. Excellent structure. Distributed by Bacchus in Alberta; $12.49 in New Brunswick.
