    February 4, 2022 - Surprisingly enjoyable wine. Purchased off of a clearance bin for $11. First pour out of the bottle showed its age. Medium ruby color with moderate bricking around the edges. Nose and palate were unexpressive and nondescript. But each taste on the first serving evolved and improved. To the point that I really wanted a second serving, which was even better than the previous serving. The wine opened up over an hour or so to show lead pencil, tobacco, maybe some slight terroir, and a little chocolate. Dark fruits also emerged; blackberry and plum come to mind. Really enjoyed this. Need to let it breath and give it a chance to show its best.
