Tom's note made me open one to check what's going on. This bottle was fine. It was as balanced as expected, which is to say not so much. But it was a decent bottle of high octane CDP. I guess you get what you expect with this one. Big, ripe, not much nuance, but works well with grilled meats.

Opened for an hour before serving. Fruit is dried and tired. Fine and few tannins. Black fruit flavors with a good dose of anise. It's a pretty wine now and still tasty but I'm drinking it up before the fruit fades any further.

Well past its prime. Maderarized, oxidized and gold in color. Delicate apple and tropical fruit flavors now masked by flaws.

Dense, alcoholic fruit bomb. Jammy raspberry and strawberry flavors, a dash of anise and black pepper. I could lay this on toast.
