Pop and pour and served with food (roast chicken, risotto and peas, and broccoli, in case you were wondering). Used a Vacu Vin to reseal and refrigerate. Then tasted again on the following two days.
There has been some discussion about green bean notes in this wine. I don't find it.
Nose of fresh red berries, some spice and a hint of vanilla. Taste is crisp and crunchy, like biting into a fresh cranberry. Some tart red berries, and an herbal note, but to me, neither green beans nor bell pepper. Takes on a little weight over time, and starts showing some more vanilla notes days after being opened. Good acidity and fresh berries. Enjoyable.

Just an unbelievable quantity of CO2 that no amount of shaking seemed to get rid of. After a night on the counter, the gas now fully dissipated, it has the typical charm and grace, but it's so tightly wound and structured that patience will be required.
