Past its prime? Rose without fruit. Flat and uninteresting.

Super vanilla and cream on the nose and palate. Cherry, fruit punch, grape skittles, ground black pepper, lavender, baking spices, gingersnap cookie, and big vanilla. Oak starts to dominate, but the fruit is of high quality. The winemakers are able to show how much love the grapes received throughout their maturation. Acid gives a little lift, but overall a little hot - 14.8% alcohol.

Maybe with food (pasta) to stand up to the tannins this works but not for siping on a hot summer day in Livermore Valley.
