Bought this for $15 in Seattle a year or two ago, thought it killer for the price and a perfect "summer red". Drank two of the six bottles I had right away, and then promptly forgot about them. Bad Jenise!
Fruit's shyer now and the acid's in control. I don't know if that's a mere stage its going through or if the wine will turn about at some point in the future and show better, but it's strictly a food wine where, early on, it was a good sipper too in a light pinot noir kind of way.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
