Not sure what to make of this, both of my bottles were opened and both smelled and tasted of cork taint (TCA). Now counter-intuitively they both still have some fruit left on the palate, but still smelled like moldy newspaper and ammonia. Given that TCA usually strips a wine of its fruit flavor/aroma, I might suspect this is just a bad wine period. But I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and say flawed.

This has a citrusy or blood orange nose. Banana? Slight bitterness and banana flavor too. Enjoyable if a bit uncommon.
