Cloudy and browning. Vegetable, wood, musk, scabby-smelling nose at first. With a little air this becomes more gently perfumed, old potpourri, dry raspberry, grandma's house. The fruit sweetens to a cherry cough drop and the pert acidity helps keep things alive. Lingering finish of oxidized metal and brick. The fact that this table wine is still clinging to life after 17 years is testament to the longevity of Tempranillo.
Fairly advanced browning. Raw meat, heavy Yerba Santa herb, perfumy, musky, citrus, shoe leather nose. Dry cherry, mild tannin, decent acid, distinctly metallic finish. Aromatically beautiful, but the fruit is dried and musky and can't quite support the palate. 12% alcohol so at least I can drink the bottle all at once.
