Tasted On 09/27/2009
Very tannic and strong on the nose, suggest decant of at least an hour. Nice strawberry flavors under the tannins, lingering oak and deep red fruits with like a cranberry nose on the back end. Very interesting wine but it brings some heat and acid that overwhelms some of the great fruit flavors on the palate. Similar palate with strawberries, cranberries, and even like a pomegranite flavor, oak and some slight dark chocolate covered strawberries on the back end. Nice fruit but you really have to get through the acid and tannins.
