Not showing a lot on the nose. A bit of earth and asphalt. Really heavy on the palate. Lacked vibrancy. Overripe. Not bad but decided to save the rest for the next day. On the second day the wine was hot and had some off flavors.
Ruby red. Slight barnyard on the nose, red berries, though overwhelmed by alcohol in the end. Tasted rather sweet... cherries/strawberries. Was lighter bodied than I would have thought given the 15% alc. Nice acidity/ no tannins.
15% ABV. Popped and poured. Somewhat translucent dark garnet in the glass. Somewhat kinky nose of spice, pinon wood smoke, and a subtle animal fur nuance. Medium full bodied with somewhat reserved red berry fruit. Tasty blast from the past, not having revisited this wine since 2005. Probably time to think about drinking these up if you still have some laying down.
