Wow, this is...very not good. J flat out refused to drink it -- said it tasted too much like gin. Personally, I thought it was more reminiscent of straight, flowery vodka -- think Absolut Potpourri. In either case, it should go without saying, but ambiguous hard alcohol is not what I'm looking for in a wine. Viscous, oily mouthfeel and a hot, unpleasant finish. I might be able to drink this at the end of the night after having already had a few drinks (hopefully of something much, much better) but it's honestly neither good on its own nor with food. Pride continues to be one of my favorite producers, but I guess I'll continue to stick to their reds from now on.
