The aroma lures you in with bright raspberry, earthy espresso and fragrant red roses. Medium-bodied, the palate enjoys all those smells, but also bittersweet chocolate, toasty vanilla and a generous, zinfandel-like black cherry. Soft tannins and an endless finish complete it. Astounding value for $20. 4.5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=2 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $20
