I enjoyed this. It's a deep ruby in the glass, with aromas of berries and spice. A fairly strong body, with a warm peppery finish and nice tannic dryness. The only thing I miss a little is the blackberry and cherry is a bit weaker tasting than I would have expected, but overall it was robust dry red without any real deficits. I'd call it an 88-89.
Nice bouquet but body a bit watery and plain. Peppery finish. Decent for the price.
