    January 20, 2018 - NIcely aged fruity Zin with low tannins and a full mouthfeel. Like inviting an old friend for dinner. Beautiful color.

    November 20, 2009 - pretty bad, sarah suspects that this bottle has turned a little "eau du vinegar", i think it might just be bad wine. we do not recommend, but it did make delicious sangria with rapid application of the emergency/non-emergency sangria kit (footnote rutt.

    October 15, 2009 - Smooth with light berry flavor and good color. Excellent value.

    August 31, 2009 - I think it's one of the following:
    A) Not yet ready to be opened. (Needs a few years.)
    B) Needs to be decanted for awhile.
    C) Not a good year.
    D) Or my pallet has advanced since I last tried an Old Moon.

    Wife says it's "bricky and mild. Seems to lack complexity but drinkable. Not necessarily to be savored, but drinkable enough to get you drunk."

    I think it's a little tart, or bitter, or tannin-y. I'm not sure what that taste is I'm getting, but it's not fruity or full or spicy.
