always one to look for a good bargain wine, i found this one from australia at the local grocer for $5. it even had a sticker touting how a wine magazine is giving it rave reviews. so why not give it a try. i was not disappointed. the nose was fruit forward with blackberry and plum, anise and leather notes. good start. the palate was more black cherry and some raspberry, with some nice leather and earth as well. medium tannins and a nice full finish. impressive for only $5. good grilled meat or chicken wine. i enjoyed this with a stir fry of pork and asian vegetable medley.
