The wine has some very elegant components that just don't seem to come together. A very jammy nose with a silky Aussie shiraz-like mouth feel. A wonderful first impression which just drops off into a very abrupt and bitter finish. Can't put my finger on when or why it goes so wrong, just wished that it had more to offer... A real head-scratcher. Beauty with no substance. Felt cheated.
Day 1 - 1/2 bottle used for cooking. Day 2 tasting note - Garnet & clear, taste of plum, cherry, dark chocolate, slight smokiness & spice. Slight hotness still, but drink pretty smooth. Med intensity & medium length acidic finish. Tannin is there but not harsh at all, good mouth feel.
Air & time is your friend for this wine. It is enjoyable, but I wanted more. I don't agree with others to give low score but its not their type of wine. Its good QPR regardless
