This one has definitely improved over the last year. Upon opening it was a little thin with a very short finished. Several hours later it had filled out and was a solid CDR. The following day, the tannins had softened and the flavor profile blended together better. First day I would rate 85 second day I would give it 88.
The lack of a nice nose on this wine is made up for on the first taste. The nose is slightly astringent with a little wood and pepper, but light on fruit. The taste mingles a nice tartness with cherry, pepper and blackberry. It finishes with a slight tartness but is smooth with medium tannins.
