Very typical nose with leather and earth and very fresh green herbs, and nuanced bitter almod. The entry is soft and round, very 1998 yet with a good juicy core of red fruits and bitter almond skin turning astringent on the long subtly spicy finish with echoes of bitter cherry. real shines with dinner but a nice glass on it's own.

Lovely ruby color - medium bodied. After 3 hours open noted cherry, jolly rancher, a little oak and clean earth on the nose. The taste was primarily cherry with smoky oak. It seems there are still a lot of unresolved tannins in this wine along with some pretty strong acidity. Based on this tasting, and the quick tasting last week I believe I will sit on my remaining bottles for at least another year or two before retasting.

WLTV North Jersey Off-Line at Basilicos: This wine worked much better as a food complement than a stand-alone wine. Alone the wine was a bit sour and tough. During the meal (pasta) the flavors worked well together, and after the meal the taste further developed to be reminiscent of cherry kool-aid. Rather thin-bodied. No score at this time, need to re-taste.
