Natalie's Score: 90/100

Fleshy black raspberry and cherry on the nose of this terrifically tasty Californian red wine blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The name is fun, but don't let that mislead you into thinking that this isn't a seriously good wine. Pair with roast beef for three ;)

Food pairings: saucy pulled-pork sammies, braised short ribs with chocolate and rosemary.

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Cherry, plum, vanilla, strawberry. This wine is a little on the plush side. Vanilla, blackberry and cherry on the palate with a long, sweet finish. A great sipping wine for anyone who doesnt like an overwhelming acidity. I would pair with a tomato-based dish, or something marinated with soya sauce.
Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Ruby red, the nose shows sweet fruits, dark chocolate, cherry, raspberry jam, clove, and vanilla. Palate shows ripe raspberry, smoke, raspberry jam, and vanilla. Slightly off-dry, this fruit forward wine is a true crowd pleaser. If pairing with food, try pulled pork, BBQ'd ribs, or glazed ham. Tasted November 2014. 87 points. Matt Steeves - @QuercusVino
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nov 22, 2014: Med ruby/purple, candied nose with raspberry jam, vanilla, baking spice and faint herbal note. Sweet, fruity, berry jam, mocha, oak, baking spice, with near imperceptable tannins and good acidity. Crowd pleasing party wine or pair with grilled meats with sweet BBQ sauce.
Kathleen rated this wine as 20/100 with the following review:

Not enjoyable on the pallet
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

This wine's unique grape blend offers the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit that is the calling card of California reds; the perfect match with grilled meats and chicken.
