Hi folks,

Smelled cherry, a quick spice then pepper, and wet wood. Initially lot's of wood taste with little fruit, yet with a velvety feel that improved with warmth. Tannins present, and found some hints of coffee on the 4th sip hiding inside the finish.

On the second serving caught some tobacco with cherry flavor seeming to take more shape and the wood seeming to smooth out a bit. During the third serving, long rests in the mouth aloud for better enjoyment. Sometimes holding on the tongue enriches such wines. Also, went well with some extra sharp cheddar as a snack.

Later,

Hi again,

Finished up the last three servings tonight with some reheated two day old spagetti, meatballs, and sauce. The wood was firmly present across the middle with cherry at front and back, a touch of grape on the finish, too. The wine seemed more structured which tells me I probably should have let this sit a bit before tasting last night. Had decent staying power overnight with out putting it in the fridge, and overall, this was not bad.

Later,
Mark, N.H.
