Father-in-law brought it to dinner. Enjoyed the nose of dirt, asphalt, bacon/meat, and some red fruit more than the flavor profile of sweet red fruit and cotton candy that started to approach cloying. Light in body and somewhat simple. Serviceable with dinner, but I prob. wouldn't rebuy unless seriously limited for options.
Nice nose even though there are hints on vinegar or medicine. Taste start rather flat but at least this lends to a smoothness. The finish is the best part of this wine as it heats up with typical oak and pepper. Overall it is nice but not at all special.
Garnet in the glass. Big fruity nose of raspberries and strawberries. Started out completely flat and uninspired in the glass tasting bitter and watery. Evened out with air becoming "red" and developed a bit of pepper. Hoping for a surprise tomorrow night. Update: one day later and the best I can say is it didn't get much *worse*
