Haras de Pirque Character 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon

Price: around $15

Color: Deep red-violet

Nose: Cherries, plums, menthol

Taste: Buttery and dense.  Noticeable but pleasant tannins.  The finish could have been smoother.

Summary: This wine had a distinct earthy feel to it.  Almost “rooty”, if that conveys it better.  A distinct masculine wine fit to accompany a hearty meat dish.  Purchased at Costco.
