Thursday, March 3, 2011 - Great color: raspberry and dark reds, medium fragrance with a hint of orange peel and stronger clove and spicy cola. Decent mouthfeel but just slightly out of balance. Maybe it's the alcohol or the subdued fruit that makes it a fairly abrupt and slightly hard finish. Still there's much to like in spite of that hard finish. Dry, light cherry fruit. As it opens up, unfortunately, the fruit doesn't develop much more but the dry tannins become more prominent. After 3 hours it became dryer but the fruit softened and the finish lengthened. I'd say the wine can't improve so enjoy it now with food.
