This has developed nicely. Compared to the bottle we had 2+ years ago, this has matured into a deeper, richer drink. The nose is dark with earth, eucalyptus and smoke. Fairly chewy palate, yet lots of bright fruit, an element of meat, a good hit of acidity, and lively tannins at the end. A very good QPR.
Pretty consistent with my last bottle over 2 years ago. Somewhere between ruby and garnet in color. Lovely nose of smoke, ash, soil, eucalyptus, and dark red fruits. Medium body and finish, fairly high acid, and flavors of black cherry, plum, red licorice, and earth, and a nice little mineral streak shows up around the midpalate and lingers through the finish. Fantastic little Italian food wine for $10-15, and it doesn't get much better for pizza/pasta night. If this shows up in a newer vintage around $10, it's an easy case buy for me.
