Excellent. Selected a magnum for Christmas Eve dinner. The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like raspberry, black currant (cassis) and strawberry jam. It tastes like cherry, coffee, oak and lead pencil. The body is medium. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.
Overall, this was an enjoyable wine, but not a great QPR at winery price of $40. It was actually much better on the second night after being re-corked after half the bottle was consumed on night one. After initially opened, it seemed like it was still asleep without any real defining characteristics but then came into its own on night two.
