This was decent. Paired well with roasted meat and winter vegetables. But not something memorable.

Woody and hints of anise... or matchsticks... on end palate. Ripe fruit, some pepper. Heavy. Not my favorite but has drinkability. From TJs for less than 15

Cherries on the aromas with a green twist. Full-body, nice tart balance. Juicy. Moderate alcohol.

Great fruit and dry finish. Intense flavor and mild nose. Time has treated it well.

A little sweet, not dry. But not much smell or taste. Definitely not worth the price, $15 at most. Not getting again.
