Haven't had one of these in quite some time, and it's absolutely wonderful. Right out of the bottle (through a Vinturi), the nose is very expressive and it just developed even more over the next hour or so. Worked perfectly with my spaghetti dinner. I actually can't find words to express the flavors on the palate, other than bold, with combinations of fruity & earthy with hints of spice. It's a somewhat bright fruit. The finish isn't as long as I would like, but it has good balance and a solid acidity.
Very smooth from start to finish, no rough edges at all. Dried cherry flavors with moderate acidity. Wonderful food wine. The label stated this was an old world wine, but I have to disagree. The bright fruit from the CA sunshine makes me go new world.
