The nose on this was full of raspberry and mineral with a touch of heat from the alcohol. The palate leaned toward red fruit but exploded into alcohol and never really transformed into anything great over the 3 hours of drinking it. A bit of a disappointment considering a couple of years ago this was a lot better.

Maybe the worst wine I have ever tasted from any region. Smell of burnt rubber and poo (not brett). I took one sip and spit it out and could not stand to take another.

Red, translucent color. Really pretty and expressive nose from the start. Palate was at first a bit amiss (maybe just a tad disjointed), but it did come together with air, which makes me think it just needs air/time to come together. I'll check back in on second half of the bottle tomorrow and see where it is.

Revisited. This has really not changed much since night 1. Nose, and Kutch pedigree, makes me think this will blossom with a little time, but hard to tell for sure right now. Currently 89-90 pts.
