This is another one of those Royal Wine specials! I really have no idea what the Wine Spectator saw in this wine - they gave it 90 points a few years ago. I bought two bottles of it and both times they were duds! Total failures. So I thought that maybe the wines were damaged in some way. When I saw the bottle at the 2008 Wine Festival (http://kosherwinemusings.com/2008/02/22/international-food-wine-festival-2008
), I said here is my chance to FINALLY see what Wine Spectator saw in this wine. The Rashi group was presenting the wine and it was cellared in their winery. It was still hopeless. I really have no idea who buys this stuff and thinks it is acceptable. I understand people need to make a living - but selling garbage and saying it has a 90 point rating - does injustice to the kosher wine market and the merchant who is pushing this stuff.
Really a shame. Business is business, so that is what we are here for - to help people understand that there are the wine merchants and then there are the people who are impartial and tell the truth.
