Since I'm home alone enjoying pizza tonight with baby drab, I thought a "small bottle" was appropriate.
The last bottle I had of this was way "off". It had a nasty element of V.A. This one is MUCH better. This wine is coming along nicely. Dark ruby red/purple color. On the nose...wild berry cobbler, cinnamon stick, cigar spice, anise and blackberry. On the palate...lots of anise, blackberry liquer, black pepper, cigar spice box, and mint. Tannins are smoothing out, but still VERY present. Flavors are melding together, but no secondary nuances yet. Moderate acids. Long finish. This is VERY nice juice. 93+ pts. for me.
So much wine.....so little time!!!
