    February 17, 2013 - This has to be a case of bottle variation. The bottle I had on 12/4/2012 did little to excite me, although it was clearly a well-made wine. In this bottle, however, the fruit and spice jumped out. Plum, bright cherry, strawberry, xmas spice, and lightly gritty tannins made this a very enjoyable wine, well beyond good. Makes me think the last one was a little corked?
