Poured into glass about 3 hours ahead of first taste, not sure what I think. The alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming. Tannins are quite noticeable. Will need to see how this develops. Day 2: more fruit and the wine is starting to open up, fair amount of spice and interest.

Overblown and overdone, but not too bad with a burger actually.

Drinking the 2013 in 2015. Big bold black fruit flavors up front. Very mellow. Almost no tannins, low spice, mild sweetness. Great with grilled meats and barbecue.
