14.2% alc., $16. A large negociant producer producing a diverse range of wines with lot numbers on the labels. This wine was sold by Costco. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The aromas of black plum, black currant, cardamom spice and toasty oak really attack the senses. Soft and easy to drink with suave tannins, sporting mid weight flavors of black plum, cassis, black raspberry and spicy oak. A good value priced wine that will please depending on the drinker’s tolerance for oak. Score: 87. Reviewed February 8, 2015
