Bricked red. Slightly funky barnyard & vegetal nose that came off after 10 minutes in the glass. Had we let it rest longer before the first pour (as with the later glasses) this wouldn't have even been noticed. Wine was lovely -- best of the lot so far. More structure, no tartness to the wine. Lovely complexity. Lush fruits with fading tannins.
Cork was perfect. Decanted and sat for 15 minutes. Opened in glasses for another 15 minutes. Not a hint of brown -- all crimson and clear. Tart cherry and earth. Not terribly complex, but a very nice wine. Some orange and cranberry along with a touch of burnt toast.
