$14 at Costco, available there now.

I really liked it. Deep red, almost purple. Very rich, dark fruit on the nose. The taste is very balanced, with a long finish. I don't know if I'm using the word "silky" in its proper context but that is the impression it gave me - plenty of facets to be felt and tasted, none of which overpowering, all in a very smooth package that covers the entire palate. This wine has a 15% alcohol content but I felt no heat. Tannic, but very well integrated (already). I will buy a few more to try as it ages.

I could not find reviews on the internet. If anyone on the board tries it I will be very interested.
