Very average. Especially for a Torbreck.
I suspect many reviewers were blinded by the name on the label (aroma of "blueberry muffin"? please.).
I bought a couple with high hopes but alas "ho-hum" was my initial reaction to the first bottle. Didn't hate it, didn't love it. 2-3 years in the cellar should improve it, loosen it up, soften it, balance it out a bit.
But this is not quite the "incredible value" JM from RP says.
A $25 "Torbreck" should at least have some character..instead I found only mediocrity.
Stateside this is a $16 wine and deservedly so.
