Drank 1/6/19. Nice pairing with Lasagna Bolognese.

Trader Joe's Value buy.

Nose of violets, wildflowers, and cherry. Cherry, leather and dusty earth backed by firm, drying tannins. The fruit on the finish finish fades a bit quickly, leaving dry tannic notes that last 30+ seconds. Pleasant, but nothing super impressive. Still, one of the better Trader Joe's bottles I've had.

Re-visited on day 3, and more floral notes do emerge, a long with some tilled soil. Tannins seem better integrated. This may improve a point or so with a couple of years.

3/21/7/3/4 + 50 =88 pts.

Didn't like the first sip. Very dry and full of tannens. It opened up nicely and with a dry but with a clean robust finish

Took over 1 hour to open up, but a nice light but rich flavor. Paired well with arribiata sauce with meat added.
