Me no likey I’m editing this to say that if you swig it right out of the bottle it’s actually pretty good. Is it possible to have a wine that tastes good right out of the bottle but not good when you put it in a glass?

2013 vintage. Smells like it's going to be a little funky, but didn't translate on the palate. Ripe raspberry, black cherry, red plum, leather, dark basil, autumn leaves. Fruit quality is quite ripe and concentrated, almost like dissolved Jello versions of their flavors, but in a pleasant way that is counterbalanced by its earthier qualities.
