The wine is pleasant, although on the jammy side, which is not surprising as it has 14.5% alcohol & just not worth the price, even at the clearance price. Score: 86/100.

Negatives: The price and 14.5% alcohol

Pairings: Drink this now or in next 5-7 years on its own or pair it with Korean BBQ Ribs
