Smooth(ed). Not quite as good as I had remembered it from a couple years ago. Fine fruit, but seemed a bit muted comparatively. Perhaps this suggests drinking sooner than later, or perhaps it's because I've had this stored in my house at room temp (60-77F) for a few years, or both. Or neither. One more bottle remains, and I'll probably have that within 6-10 months. 87-88pts
