This is a Bordeaux in disguise. Way too young at this point, may get better with age. Right now buy only if you want to burn your money away.

Could use some more time. Will benefit from decanting.

If this bottle was a good specimen, this wine is past its peak and will not last much longer.

If you like a fruit bomb, this is your wine. Hope it mellows with age.

Although this will undoubtedly be better in a few years, it is, to me, too young. High tannins. Good with the bear tonight, but not for sipping.
