89Juicy and soft, this is a legitimate crowd pleasure at a terrific price Black currants and a background of black plum come out on the nose. On the palate, this is juicy, exploding with black currants, black cherries, and blueberries. Vanilla and spice box flavors, then sweet pastry crust, come out on the mid-palate. Gentle tannins add to a soft mouth feel. Drink with baby back ribs and onion rings. Recommended. 89 points.
