There continues to be a bitter green note (stems? unripe seeds?) that continues to hold this wine back. The tannins don;t seem fully ripe but there are correct notes of sour red cherry and slight spice notes.
The nose was the most promising feature of this wine. There was a mix of earth and red cherry. - The palate was very tired. The red cherry fruit is bitter and seems dried out and tired. The tannins are bitter and leave a bitter finish. Perhaps this needed more decanter time but the wine was bad enough that I didn't see the need for it. I'll try again with another bottle but this bottle was not good.
