Very dark purple in the glass.
Spicy cherry fruit, red licorice and chocolate on the nose.
Rich and mouth-coating, sweet cherry and raspberry fruit, spicy and peppery, chocolate, some beets, currants, but with an ever-present drying woodiness (kind of like sucking on a popsicle stick, once the popsicle is gone).
Drying, tart finish, with a little bit of heat.
Retails for $13.05 Canadian and, IMHO, not worth buying again.
To my mind, a great many economical Chilean Cabernets exhibit this woody characteristic.
