After a little debating, I decided to pop a bottle to see what it's like now. The last time I tried it was at last summer's TAA. I think I was one of the few people who liked it...I threw mine in the fridge for a little while to cool it down.

I opened the bottle last night, 04/04/04 and I drank some right out of the bottle. I wasn't too impressed...still hot.

After having two glasses removed, I let it sit in the bottle all day and now I'm tasting it again tonight.

Something doesn't smell right and I can't put my finger on what it is. It smells hot and the alcohol masks the fruit.

It didn't come together like I had hoped. The fruit seems to be taking a back step, but in it's place is alcohol and tannin.

If I was a rating kind of guy, which I'm not, it wouldn't even get in the 80's...that's a pretty big swing from what I thought of it last summer.

Overall, I'm pretty bummed.

Mike
