Long name, inexpensive wine [img][/img]

Decent drinker, initially darker fruits and good acidity, with some older wood, medium body and some saltiness. Good for a sandwich or in my pot roast that is now roasting away [img][/img] $5 [img][/img]

Making a bit of a pot roast for tomorrow so needed to cook with this, but had a good 1/4 bottle with some left over pasta for dinner tonight. Worked really well. Workmens dinner really but really honest food and drink really, I mean really really. .. Really!.....great starting to sound like some of my interns at work....

Damn this thing gets better with time. BEst $5 I've ever had. Nice funkiness, and character now and remains well balanced. No other change in notes

Bargain of the year for sure for me. Have gotten through most of my case (few left). It is a great, cook with it and drink the rest combo. Last night made slow cooked stew with this and drank the remaining half bottle. Not bad at all.

Second last bottle,...gosh, should have bought a couple of cases as this thing still has legs to go.
