Definitely needed to lay in the cellar for another 5 years. Still approachable but for the cost, WAIT.

Very smooth, not dry and not too sweet. Letting cellar for 17years makes a difference!

Not bad for a casual bottle after work.

Need to lay for a couple of years. Has a very strong bite with a lot of tannins up front. Not as good as other vintages that I taste. Not worth the price from Total Wine.

This wine is meant to drink immediately. Not meant to cellar.

Tasted and did not like. Let it lay too long.

Taste this wine about a year ago and gave it 75 points but opened over the weekend and was very nice for the price. Gave it 89 points. This wine had nice color......rose in color, full body and finished well.

At its peak. Very tight and not approachable. Should have decant to settle. Other bottles were very good but this one cellar too long.

Well past its prime. Only drink with guess that don't appreciate wine.

Order a 5oz glass at Davios in Atlanta, Ga for $15. Nice.......not worth the cost of a glass but for a bottle at home, good wine to share with friends. Not a long term wine for the cellar.

Does not have a bold taste and medium body. The wine looks rosy colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. This wine is not for long term keep. Only will go down hill if not open in the next two years.

Great wine and clean on the palette. The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. Fruity with an apple peach flavor. Drink now and don't think it would cellar better than now.

The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. Awesome and can last another 2 years in the cellar. Medium body and tannins. Great with spicey cheese......

The wine looks rosy colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like black pepper, oak and bark. Took from cellar 3 days prior to opening from 55 degrees to room temperature. Very strong tannins from the onset. Let it open up for 30 mins and settled in well. Has matured nicely but would not go past another 1 year.

Not very bold and really light. Has a blackberry taste and bitter finish. May have left to cellar longer than it should have. Recommendation would be to drink within 1 to 2 years and don't cellar longer than 3 years.

Blackberry in smell and color. Took it from the cellar at 55 degrees and let it sit for 30 mins and it opened up well. Did not enjoy at first taste but really smooth. The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry. It tastes like mineral and stoniness. The body is light/medium. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

Light with a blackberry taste. Let it cellar 3 years more than it should but seems to be fine. Weekly wine with dinner.
