highly rated reviews as well as a 90 pt rating from Wine Enthusist. I have to say this, combined with the price, had my expectations higher than what was delivered. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but didn't impress. 4.5/10 rating.
Raspberry, pepper, & spice dominate and leave a harsh, tannin filled finish. My wife mentioned it "left her tounge tingly and didn't taste much like a zin." Not for solo sippin', kill it with dinner.
