This was delicious. Nice cloudy texture, great fruit balanced with minerals and acid. A joy to drink. Only drank the first half of the bottle the first night, finished the rest of it the next night and it drank just as good.
Either this wine needed time to mature (based on everyone else's bad reviews), or my palate is too under-developed.
Cloudy garnet color, sweet(!) cherry mixed with barnyard aromas give way to a sweet and bright front end, chewy tannins and a nice long bitter finish gives it a lingering Burgundian feel. Med bodied, great food wine. I wasn't expecting much but really liked this.
OK, so most people are not fans of this wine. This was out of a magnum, and it was beautiful. Not a big mouthful, or high powered, but fruit was very nice and the wine was nicely balanced. I say buy wine in mags when you can.
