Buy this wine at your own risk. I have had wildly disparate experiences with this bottling. I initially purchased one bottle, which was fantastic, and went back and purchased a six pack. Unfortunately, all other bottles have been inferior and have ranged from just solid to barely drinkable. I am understanding now why this was so heavily discounted at the local Costco. My first bottle I initially rated a 92 and have since poured two other bottles down the drain for being just plain bad. No discernible flaws, just bad. The other four bottles have been passable but wildly inconsistent - if scoring and taking an average of the aggregate I put it in the mid-80s at best. Again, buy at your own risk.
Ruby red, turning garnet. Nose of raspberry and cherry liqueur, red licorice, thyme. Similar flavors on a medium to full bodied frame. The texture remains very nice, though I didn't find quite the density as before, and it finished medium-length. If I had more bottles, I'd probably drink them over the next 3 years.
