Medium garnet with ripe plums and barnyard nose. Open an hour, lightly dry fruit, light acid, medium fruit, ripe plums, little tannins with stone fruit bitters. The ripe fruit is a bit flabby and appears to be on the down slope. After another hour or so, it's starting to show improvement and taking on the acid and fruit of a nice pinot. Given another night and showing some funky elements of leather and earthy tart fruit, watermelon, nice acid balance keeps this rockin'.
Pop and pour ... Light and bright, with cranberry, cherry and just a hint of sweet strawberries and cream. Not at all heavy, with very light touches of spice and earth. Showed best at cool cellar temp. A crisp red and a smoking hot QPR!
