Popped and poured through a vinturri into the glasss. Nice nose with red fruit, primarily strawberry, with some black pepper and a hint of vanilla. Palate reveals less fruit than the nose suggests, and it kind of tight.. red fruit, little papper, a bit tannic on the finish, but not giving much. Opened up more towards the end of the bottle. Advise an hour decant at least, but don't think this is the greatest QPR..
Very consistent with my last experience, the nose is intoxicating, the palate less so. At 26 bucks at Wine Library there are perhaps better values to be had out there, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a very nice wine.
