For me, nothings really changed. It still tastes like a cheap Cotes du Rhone. With enough swirling and sniffing a reasonably decent cherry fruit character can be detected in the nose, and it is drinkable. There is a slightly bitter aftertaste however.
I can't say it's not decent value for money though, and obviously there are people that enjoy this style of wine.
