Tart but a bit flat, not much fruit - possible bottle shock from cross country shipping.

viscous but with enough acidity for food. The flavors were not well integrated as yet so I suspect more time in the bottle is called for and I'd guess the score will go up several points at that time.

I hope this was an off bottle as it did not resemble what I had been expecting based on CT tasting notes

I liked the 1st bottle quite well but this bottle didn't offer near as much with mild fruit/acid notes and nothing distinctive to make it standout.

Very nice wine with nice fruit yet enough acid & mineral to pair well with steamed oysters.

Definitely past its prime having lost any fruit and even tasting a bit "old"

Opened after and hour or 2 in the bottle; good now but recommend a little more aging.

Very disappointing as the wine showed little fruit or finish and was rather bland. I had good CT wine buddy Izzy try it and he agreed it wasn't a spoiled bottle, that there just wasn't much to this bottle. I have another on order and hope it is much better.

Opened 5 hours before dinner and nose developed beautifully and the wine was loaded with dark fruit and soft tannins, all in all a very enjoyable wine shared with CT buddy Izzy and our spouses at Lake Hickory Country Club last evening.

Lots of dark berry and very smooth but not a lot of complexity.

Opened for an hour and in glass for 30 minutes but still very tight. As meal progressed some fruit and mocha developed but overall stayed very one dimensional. This was much better at tasting so I'll open the next bottle for several hours before drinking and rate the wine at that time.

I was expecting more from this wine than what was delivered. It had a deep golden color with a greenish tint and the flavors were of tropical fruit but muted and with little finish.
