Good for a better than average 12 dollar wine. OK for the price but a little disjointed. Good as a 12 dollar table wine. Light purple and a little brown on the color.The nose is crisp with butterscotch, black licorice and green pepper. Little too much alcohol on the nose. The palatet is very short with a bitter finish. Not very fruity, little coffee, anisette and a touch spicy. Overall just OK and better as a table wine.
