As before, this held up over night with p[potting soil, tobacco, cherry and pronounced tannins that really made it interesting. The acidity and overall tannic structure were very well balanced and could easily hold up to a bigger, more robust meal. 92+
Quite nice, this wine changed a lot after being opened about an hour - it went from somewhat closed and lean to more lush, with cherry and plum and even the tannin seemed more pronounced yet round. An undercurrent of earthiness throughout. Very enjoyable.
Had this again tonight with Sunday supper (pasta w/ meat sauce), and this is just a rocking Italian red. I think I was pretty bang on w/ my first review as far as descriptors, so I'll leave it at that. 91 might even be conservative. Yum!
