Saturday, May 12, 2012 - After a bad experience of "nose of cat pee" with the Panilonco Malbec-Merlot, I decided to pop this one in my cellar too, just to see if it had the same problem. It did, though not to such a noxious extent, and without the comparison to the Malbec-Merlot to taint it, it MIGHT have been drinkable. But I was done with having the scent of cat pee in my wine glass, so this one is heading the way of its brother: down the sink, and onto my DO NOT BUY list.
[Update: OK, I corked it and let it sit for two days and gave it another chance. It was fine, funk was gone. Smoky caramel on palate was the prominent feature. I finished it and was happy.]
