Cherry cola on the front that was a bit sweet for my palate. A big and fruity pinot that was less enjoyable but good nonetheless than the Hartford Arrendale 07 drinking along side it that seemed more refined.
I'm embarrassed by the volatility my scores here, as I last score this one at 95. But now I find this wine much more jammy than I normally expect out of a Roar. I'm not sure age will help this wine and maybe it's rolled over a bit since my last tasting.
