if you see kay red wine

If You See Kay, $19.99, 87 points, makes me wonder: will the fooling around ever stop? Not as long as people are looking to market their products.
This is New Hampshire's wine, rather wine label, of controversy, but I'm really interested in what's in the bottle, the wine itself (Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a dollop of Petite Verdot, and Primitivo-Italian Zinfandel) and is it worth the money? Yes, and no!
The color is very dense ruby with a transparent rim.
There is almost no aroma, but I was able to tease some red cherry and spice out of it.
The full body is stain your teeth purple thick, smooth to almost syurpy, with fair acidity and mild tannin.
Flavors of red cherry and plum were what whetted my palate, but the finish was fine on spice.
This wine is made ironically in Italy by an American.
Is the iysk wine worth $19.99? The decision is a close call, but in my humble opinion, not for the wine, but yes for what retrograde Hippies and Hell's Angels could do with it, or someone who likes this style of straight-forward and full-bodied red wine.
As for Thanksgiving? Give thanks that you're still alive! You know who you are!
