This was undrinkable - a brett bath I believe. The bottle variation for this wine is unbelievable. Sometimes you hit gold, sometimes it hardly resembles wine. Sad.

Vinturi into decanter and let sit for approx. 2 hours ... Wow! Just when I think I can't be more impressed with a Story wine. This is beautiful stuff. Deep, almost opaque crimson in the glass, with blueberries and cream, mixed with a hint of floral, on the nose, but something sharper and more juicy on the palate. Bright, fresh strawberries, deepen into almost-ripe blackberries that still have a hint of green. The fruit melts into a caramel cream, that is balanced with sweet, but firmly present, tannins and a puckering acid pop backed by baking spice. Rich and lush and smooth and gorgeous after air, plus it got better all night in the glass. Incredible now, with oodles of upside. One of the best wines I've ever had for under $50; actually, one of the best wines, period. This punches way, WAAY above its price point. Watching Russell From make better and better wines, year after year, has been a joy. Can't say enough good things about this maker, or this bottling. Gorgeous juice!
