where to start... OK I cooked a steak. Had a sip of this while eating. I could taste the cherries and the raspberry the wine said it had. The only problem is, I had too go through so much acidity to get them followed by an aftertaste of Robatussin and Zinfindel. More importantly, my guest who I have known for more than 15 years, did not like it either and had similar commentary. It's not undrinkable, but I am not buying it again.
