Picked this up for $19. A rare RRV value with plenty of dark cherry, cranberry, baking spice, and a hint of green bell.

Cranberry and cherry flavored. Surprisingly smooth. Tasted better as it opened up.

Strawberry, cooked cherry, lightly toasted, stems, touch of iron and vanilla. Tastes a little bland and lacking some acid and mid-palate action. Watered back maybe? Decent.

Smooth and very soft with delicate strawberry and cranberry flavors. Almost a little too light for my liking.

Bright and grapey nose w/ some leather and ember notes. Pleasant mouthfeel. Finishes very dry.
