Has anyone tried the Snoop Dog 19 Crimes yet? Its a blend of Zin and Petit Syrah with heavy oak. Seems interesting.

Kind of got subtlety blasted in that Sommelier video someone posted a few days ago.

This is the 2020 second run wines, a blend of Merlot and Zinfandel with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petite Verdot. It was aged for nearly 6 months on @Mike - Next Level Oak's product -- all of them -- American, French, and Hungarian oak in different carboys. At bottling time we discovered that blending the 3 produced the best flavor. While the color is not dark, the wine has a nice fruit forward flavor (not possible to distinguish grape) and the oak is a nice accent on the finish, a seasoning not a flavor. Everyone who has tasted this really likes it.

Two cases got the Frankenwine label. I love the expression on folks' faces when they read it. [Never be afraid to poke fun at yourself!]
