I’ve had tasting pours on two occasions, but my first time sitting down with a bottle over several nights. Seemed ready to go on pop and pour. Fruit forward, but not heavy or jammy. Medium bodied and lighter than expected for the 15.5% ABV. Delicious- not sure I understand AG’s “not recommended” call on these wines.
