14.9%, Screwcap, $18
A quick internet search reveals that this particular red can be picked up from a (good) local retailer for the sum of just $14.95 per bottle or less than the price of a six pack of Crownies from said retailer. I know what I wold be choosing...
Big, open cast nose on this that looks just a fraction broad but still full of black and red berried chocolatey richness. Palate follows to with a hearty, yet smooth, sort of Vale red in that 'acres of flavour' mode. Still rather medium bodied, it finished with just enough punch to have you coming back for another glass. Very easy recommendation for an under $15 red this one. Well packaged too. 16.5/88
