    He said: Dark red color. Nice blackberry bouquet. Blackberry taste and a medium length, slightly acid finish. No Zinfandel intensity or depth, disappointing even at this price.

    She said: Dark berry bouquet but flavor not up to the bouquet. Slightly acidic with medium body, firm tannins and an undistinguished finish.
