Sipping Fine Wine

Opening a bottle, which needs to breathe, Vivid Ruby with dark crimson edges and aromas of red fruits and spice on the nose. On the palate ripe cherries, plum and dark fruit come forth along with hints of sweet spice tobacco and dark chocolate. The finish shows well developed tannins and balanced with sweet oak. This wine is a tremendous value. Outstanding!

Disappointing single note Chianti. A hint of tobacco and dried dark unripe fruit.

CellarTracker users called this dead but I disagree. Rich cherry and flowers, acid shows finesse. Fading, yes, though drinking well.
