As a riserva, I thought this might last 10 years, but no. This had the profile of a mature wine, with secondary aromas like mushrooms, but the fruit had mostly gone and the wine was a bit dilute. Should have been drunk 5 years ago.
Found this laying down in the back of my cellar, a cheap bottle from several years ago. Pop & Pour. Color is ruby with some bricking. Smells of sour cherries and animal funk. With a little air the funk starts to blow off and leaves crushed cherries, sage and lavender, with some subtle barnyard left in the background. Surprisingly tannic still. Nothing super here but good, drinkable and enjoyable.
