Beautiful light garnet color and immediately note oak on the nose. Dried fruit, cherries. Lots of oak and barrel aging is very noticeable. Tannins are still firm and wish I had another bottle to revisit in a few years. Great deal for the price.
Great deal for $15. Decanted for a few hours on Day 1, and then pop and poured on Day 2. Really well balanced with surprisingly bright fruit to balance the high acidity and medium tannins. Nice long finish, think it's drinking well with some air now and a better deal than a lot of Village Burgundys at similar price points.
Surprised by the overt wood treatment on this wine. Maybe it was in part the switch from a Loire gamay that made me notice it so much, but I didn't like it. I will leave this alone for a few more years now.
