Tasted over 3 nights. Wine left on the counter with the cork in. Day 1 wine smelled good. Dark color. Smooth. This drank well the first hour with just a hint of acid. After 60 minutes, serious acid arrived, making this difficult to continue drinking. The good news > HOLD this if you own it. On Day 2, the wine was much better. No acid. Really enjoyable. I saved a sip for the last day. The wine was ok, but I know my non-geek friends would have loved it. At $19 cost from the mailing list, it was good QPR, especially on the second day.
