Raspberry, blackberry, and milk chocolate on the nose
Smooth, velvety texture, and a good backbone
Some oak and vanilla on a finish that tapers nicely
After another bottle of this terrific wine, I'm even more impressed. While I've had this wine a half dozen times in the past few months, this time was different. I didn't even get my first glass until the bottle was half empty. Not only that, it had been sitting on the kitchen counter with a wine stopper in in for two days because my wife had popped the cork while I was away. Regardless, it was delicious. And it's certainly an added bonus that it seems to have kitchen counter longevity. I stocked up on this for just $12/bottle, which is $5 below the suggested retail price. Raise a glass!
