Tasty, holding up well, good amount of cherry notes, but not just dried cherry - so still vibrant. Drank this with Korean fried chicken at Underbelly, Houston. Paired excellently. The 2 cohorts with me agreed that this is a very food friendly wine. It seemed like it could hold up a couple more years, but a brickish color variation has already begun setting in. I would get this again given the chance.
Excellent QPR. A mild sense of mint, maybe peppermint or juniper berries, with a blackberry sense, but not overly dominating. The perfume is of modest alcohol and the taste is smooth without being cloying. This is excellent right now, I've no sense that additional aging time is needed. It was also good and stayed good with time in the glass, so no strong need for decanting.
Gambero Rosso 2013 (Metropolitan Pavilion): The nose showed intense red and black berry fruits with floral perfume and just the right amount of green stems. On the palate, it was dense yet balanced with intense mixed berry fruit that stayed long through the finish.
