This has gotten worse over the past year. lot's of stewed veggies,some plum,a hint of dirt, and faint baking spice on the nose. The mouth-feel is not very pleasing this has become V8 imho...Has seen better days.
nose: light nose that is lacking a bit of depth with tones of dark plums, bits of cranberries, dark berries and some hints of cherries
taste: a bit hollow on the mid-palate and finish and very light with tones of dark plums, dark berries and cherries
overall: comes across as a bit long in the tooth. There's some browning at the rim and none of the tones were all that together or fully there as there seemed to be a faded aspect to the wine. On the downslope and needs to be drunk
cloudy color- nose had a nice amount of stink to it. this wine still has some life left. lot's of sour cherries,cranberry, and a bit of earth with an average finish. got better with air-have one bottle left and will decant more carefully with that one.
Had as first wine with Thanksgiving dinner. Not easy to make mental notes during a busy holiday dinner. Red fruit holding nicely with a nice light touch of oak and good acidity. This wine should drink nicely for several more years but certainly ready now.
