Looking at other people's notes, I wonder if this wine shouldn't be decanted, at the moment, to show best. I've had it once in a restaurant, without decanting, and can see how it could be described as simple. However, this bottle decanted at home was complex and unusual, the wine evolving in the glass.
PopnPour, tasted over 3 hrs -med red with slight clearing at edge -aromatic bubble gum and spice -initially med- acidity gives soft mouthfeel despite its light weight, moderately sappy mid-palate has exuberant fruity pink bubble gum component along with a gentle soft spiciness and strangely enough a bit of grapefruit bitterness, becomes more focused after 3 hrs -interesting, pleasant, reminiscent of a hypothetical blend of a Beaujolais and frappato
LI Blind, Chadwicks: (alongside '11 Gonon VdP with mushroom duxelles pâté) finished next day. Once again, strawberry colored to match its principal flavor. Demure on its own, it perked up nicely with the pâté. Next day, just a lovely expression os Schiava.
