Similar to the Kongsgaard, this wine that @Bill Makens brought didn't do much for the table...at first. Nose and palate were fairly one dimensional...lots of raspberries. About two to three hours later, this improved significantly. I believe this is dominant merlot, so I was a bit surprised it took so long, but it came on strong at the end. Rounded the flavor profile out with some black pepper and plums.

Mushrooms, cigar-box, black currants and a little pigskin. Delicious!

Withstood the: "loved it and then inadvertantly found, then smelled, then still really loved finding a half FULL glass of this Cab almost 24 hrs later."
Built to impress...built to last.

Very nice. Best enjoyed with healthy pour in a super bowl solo cup.
