This wine has a stony, mineralic nose with a lot of spiciness; the palate exhibits spice notes but the fruit is a very restrained especially for 2012. The fruit character is hard to discern but it is on the darker side rather than the redder side. Good levels of acid; the tannins are not in play, and there is a slight mushroomy finish. Decent value-priced food wine. Could wish for a lot more stuffing but not at this price.

Alert: I'm not a wine expert. This wine is great for sipping. Not super fruity, a little on the darker side. It's good for watching Scandal!

At first I was going to pour this out, it was like air. After about 30 mins in the glass it opened nicely. Earthy
