    The moral to this story: sometimes you got to give it a second try, I'm glad that AS made me buy it.

    Dark ruby color.
    Nose offers some red berries, plums and wood. A little dusty, like old wooden used wine vats.
    Shows that dirty element on the palate along with some dried cherries, cocoa powder, plum and mushroom notes as well.
    Drinkable but nothing too exciting.

    November 13, 2020 - Not for me; but acceptable for most. This was lighter in body and color, but still was fruit forward. In a sentence, it was one and done for us.

    spicy nose, violets
    Bitter cherry on the palate and then sweet plummy fruit
    Tastes like a bit of a clash at the moment but may settle down with time in the bottle.

It took a while for the nose to open up, showing cherry and damson fruit, aromatics including rosemary, thyme, also some leather. This slips down easily as long as it's with food, perhaps pizza and pasta. Good balance of tannins and acidity, more cherries and some charcoal. Medium length. In summary, it's a good supper wine if you can get it at a good price.
