Picked up a bottle of this for $9 tonight to try. *Red Band label*
Dark garnet color with good clarity. No color in legs. Not quite as dark as the 03. Mild nose of licorice, spice, and vanilia. Silky smooth on the pallet with dark fruit, licorice, and a touch of vanilla leaden spice. A bit one dimensional, but extreamly smooth. Short to moderate finish of spice and vanilia infused fruit. Great QPR. While not quite as good as the '03, still a solid everyday buy at 88pts.
