Since I had two, decided to open one for s&g. Tastes like an Aussie or South African Rhône blend, uber fruit-forward. Needs time to become anything worth buying again, even at the drastic discount price I paid.

Wow, a big velvety animal. But a young one, still waiting to grow into itself. Great wine with amazing potential.
