Loved it! Really out there. Amazing! Like green olives and rare fillet mignon, with a mad minerality and a touch of salt. Some tart red fruits, but they seem to have settled considerably along with what was likely once a scary acidity. Metaphorically tastes like someone slaughtered a bull and let it bleed all over the the restaurant floor, and I loved every traumatic moment of it.
Not for everyone, certainly not for the faint hearted or if you prefer new world fruit. Drinking this wine is a bit like playing high school football in west Texas....if you go in soft, you're going to get hurt.
I have had 3-4 bottles of this wine in this vintage and never liked it. My conclusion was that the wine needed more time, but this bottle was clearly flawed, undrinkable. Acidic, with an odd chemical flavor mixed in with sour cherry.
