It's A Head Snapper 2014 Radiant Red Wine (Livermore/Ripon, Ca.)

It's A Head Snapper 2014 Radiant Red Wine (Livermore/Ripon, Ca.), $8.99-$11.99, 87 points, poured a beautiful deep and almost Shiraz purple/red with a broad clear wine ring.
Aromatic cedar/pine, cinnamon, blueberry, and potpourri were enticing and interesting.
Near full-bodied with an underlayment of supportive tannin and good acidity which carried unusual flavors of Red Lingonberry, juniper, and blueberry.
Finished okay on tart pomegranate, warm spices, a hint of marzipan, and a restrained 13.5% alcohol.
I've only been able to locate two red wine varietals produced by Head Snapper, Pinot Noir and Malbec, so I'm only guessing what might be in this bottle.
I bought this wine at the Shaw's Super Market of Londonderry.
