Saturday night at Tanglewood with the BSO playing Britten, Adès & Beethoven, and Emanuel Ax on piano.

Fruit is decent, not much of a green note from the Merlot, certainly get the Cab. Franc on the nose. Ripe raspberry and smokey, not-too-sweet, stewed red fruit, evolving on the glass finally after two hours.

Chuncky fruit but that's it. Otherwise, it's hot acidic mess.
