I thought this wine was promising right away, but in the way that I like wines well-aired, I thought it needed two hours to fully show itself. Then it has nice aromas and flavors of dark roses, dark plum, cranberry / raspberry, with ripe fruit but also plenty of acid and an earthy tannic finish, in a light-to-medium bodied wine. I think it’s an elegant and tasty wine for the money, and definitely a food wine.
The saved single-glass, screwcap bottle still needed a bit of air to show dark, earthy plummy flavors that were less acid and less complex than on the first night. I might have liked it better the second night. For those who like earthy, tannic, somewhat acid, European wines, this is a good deal for a daily red. It should hold on well for two or three more years.
