Thursday, June 11, 2009 - I don't know why I bought this, but I'm not unhappy with it at all. Cork was soaked. Lots of sediment. Deeply bricked. Opened to a wonderfully nose of fruit and cedar. Really gorgeous nose, actually. The tannins are almost utterly resolved, very fine. But what keeps this wine alive is the acidity framing the fruit and secondary flavors, a sunny brightness that shines some nice, late-afternoon light on the palate. It's a fading wine=--pretty far gone perhaps, with its major flaw being just a hint of tomato in the mouth--but it's sliding into oblivion with some grace and self-respect and I'm happy to be here, helping it along.
