Ok. Too sweet. Possibly due to higher alcohol (14.8%). Needs more acidity to balance it. No more Club W wines for me, too many "meh" bottles.

Given how young a vintage I was surprised at the quality of this. Though it seems most don't like it, it's pretty good imho.

Agree that something must have gone terribly wrong with this vintage or perhaps requires mandatory aging - without doing so, it was undrinkable. Cloyingly sweet with an intensely unpleasant synthetic wood finish. We actually mixed it with a more tolerable but still unremarkable primitivo (Kin & Country) since it couldn't get worse, and it actually was quite an improvement but still. After so so experiences with several bottles from Club W, this was the last straw. I, too, canceled my membership. Bleh.

Read the bad reviews. I like it, it's spicy & leathery. Yes a bit too sweet, but I'm into it. I think if it sat for another year or two it would be better. If you have a bottle, maybe hang onto it for some time.

Very grape fruit juice like. Not really for me.

Agree with most other reviews on this one. Has a metallic taste and is very sweet but not terrible. I'll still drink it ; )
