Can't score because once again, did not take notes. Drank over at Jane's and paired with a beautiful London Broil on the grill. I remember it having a charred or smoke bouquet, integrated smooth dark fruit with a nice backbone. Finish was medium. It was good.
Served to me blind and on the cold side I thought this had to be a Rhone. It had a bit of horsey funk and some anise flavors. Once it warmed up it started to taste more like an Italian wine with dark fruit, spices and a nice finish. It was balanced and could probably short-term age (less than two years). $25 on release.
Dallas Blur Tasting 2003: Cabernet and Sangiovese? Cherry fruit, acid. Okay. Tasting this the next day it revealed more complexity. Still slightly austere and structured but with some herbs and graphite to add interest.
