My last bottle. Largely matches my note from a year ago though the fruit is coming through more. Also some earth & a hint of grilled meat. Aged with medium acid/tannins - still pleased for the price; I would drink any remaining bottles by the end of 2015.
Light tannins and medium acidity. Soft, smooth and a little fruit. Pleasant surprise, can't remember where or when I picked this up? Went well with Chicken, mushroom and artichoke in a light brandy cream sauce. Wife had Eggplant parm.
Showing black cherries and - oddly enough - blueberries, with a touch of pepper and spice emerging on the back end with the prominent acidity. Drank a bit better before and with dinner - seems a bit more astringent sipping it after. A solid value.
Update (12/24): had the last 1/3 of the bottle vacuum-sealed, and now sipping that a full 6 days later while prepping the brick oven. It seems to have mellowed a bit, with a bit more depth to the fruit, and smoother on the finish. Hmmm. Interesting.
