Monday, February 25, 2013 - Never really came around for me. Maybe just needs more time. Experience was unlike prior tastings. Great purple color. Muted nose. Alc on finish is worst part. Will give other bottles more time.
Update to TN. Had a glass leftover on day 3. Wine seemed to integrate a bit more. Alc burn on finish had almost dissipated. Still a little left, but more tolerable. Next bottle definitely needs a lot of time to integrate. Maybe 5+ hour decant will help.
