Big dissapointment. I remember tasting this a year ago and feeling that it showed high-pedigree fruit and a good acid structure. Today it just seems like another TRB syruppy mess. Too sticky-sweet, too flabby, and whatever structure was there gets lost in the overloaded front palate. No score since many people like this style.
This is certainly young. I tried early, gave lots of air and the left for the next day. Very enjoyable and a lot of tannic and acid structure but otherwise it seemed to lack complexity. Admittedly it is very difficult to get past the oak, and I don't mind oak but this is oakity oak. I would have liked a little more concentration to match the oak. With the structure this wine should show improvement hence my score.
