Had this with dinner of Fettuccine and Ragu sauce. Great wine to go with the food. Mostly Merlot and Cab, this IGT is a real crowd-pleaser. Somewhat Bordeaux-like, but with more weight of fruit and more funk than I am used to from Bordeaux at this young age. Black and red fruits like blackberry, black currant, plum, and some cherry. Tobacco, earth, and dried herbs. You can tell that this is young, still, as it has ferocious structure and fruit, yet it manages to stay in balance with ample acidity and a sappy, lip-smacking finish. Really a nice wine, especially considering the moderate cost point. Recommended.
