Tight nose after opening but it opened up quickly with some barnyard notes. I wasn't able to spend much time thinking about this wine but it showed good complexity and balance. I can easily give it 90 points but I may have gone higher if I had time to critique it more.
No notes taken. After a 3 hr decant she seemed ready for prime time. Decent weight and still fruit but somewhat tight still. Not a hundy bottle, but ok for the price paid. 87 pts. Drink now or in a few yrs. Decent foodie wine.
Very dark purple in color and shows a very nice, fruity nose of violet and plum with a hint of alcohol. This is full-bodied and offers a very plush mouthfeel - similar to Amerone. Lots of plum fruit on the front and mid-palate, ending with a medium finish. Very, very dry but fruity enough to be satisfying. A bit one-dimensional, but at this price point ($16) it delivers decent value. 50+5+12+13+8=88
