The bottle I opened today revealed a wine that was deep purple in color, slightly turbid. Intense berry bouquet with a background of vanilla. The wine seemed unbalanced with an initial burst of acidity followed by assertive tannins. The promise of fruit from the nose was never realized in the palate.
Perhaps my cold is worse than i thought. Perhaps the bottle was flawed. Wine advocate gave this 91 points. I have three more bottles in the cellar. I'll update this after opening another. For now I'll give it 75 points.
