A good effort, if slightly pricey for the quality level. Ruby color, classic though by no means explosive nose of black raspberry, sour cherry, and vanilla. Round with ripe fruit in the mouth, with a slight touch of bitterness in the mid-range. Finish is somewhat acidic, though when this dissipates there is a satisfying fruit-filled finish. - WB team 2002-10-08
