3rd bottle over 3 years almost one year apart on each. Twisted and poured, consumed over 3 hours. Nose shows red fruit, baking spices, slight herbalness (not in a bad way) underneath. Taste is strawberry / cherry with noticeable acids up front and tart tannins bringing up the rear. Light, thin, and no real complexity on the palate. Disappointing compared to other vintages.
Decanted. Nose of red berries and mint. Lighter berry fruit on the palate with some spice. Acidity and tannins are well balanced at this point. Medium finish. I think this is drinking quite well at this time.
This wine is an underperformer, especially for the price and the winemaker. Clear ruby with a red brick tint. Nose of black cherry, menthol and a dusty/earthy/moldy note that is not particularly welcome. Light to medium palate of cherry, strawberry, cola, and spice. Flavor profile is a bit simple. Length: only fair. Bright acidity verging on the tart. Supple tannins. Silky texture. Overall, just so-so...
