I tasted this one BLIND and was really surprised when I discovered the price, a great wine for under $30. Here were my notes:

Visual: Deep plumb to violet on the rim, no obvious signs of aging.

Nose: Blackberry jam, but not too jammy, fig, dried plumb (NOT prunes), and black pepper with just a hint of vanilla.

Palate: The nose is confirmed with more pepper on the immediate attack, silty tannins that have a slight drying affect, a wee bit of heat on the back end but it is well balanced and a peppery finish on the return.
