First bottle I have opened since just after release, this continues to validate my initial thoughts of this as an amazing value wine. Lots of strawberry and red cherry everywhere. This has lost a little of its freshness from two years ago, but seems to have picked up weight.
This definitely needs some air to open up. Dark in color - black fruits with some cinnamon and spice. Big on the palate although linear and lacking interest and complexity. Nice wine that performs at its level but nothing more.
Have had two bottles in the last week. Very pleasant though a bit early. If not going to leave it open for a couple of hours, you will probably miss the balance of the lively fruit notes and burgundian structure. Will drink well '14 - '16. Should buy now. Offers great value.
