Very attractive dark (think blood with more purple) in the class. Not a particularly pretty nose--some berry ideas, but also some volatile astringency. Initial sip blows all kinds of blackbery/raspberry sensations over the tip of the tongue. Some minty herbaceousness across the mid-palate. Somewhat bitter on the back of the throat. Finish is pretty neat--mintiness comes back. This is an OK wine, but it does not seem to have focus. It goes in one direction, then another, then another. Let's see how it goes with tonight's grilled Tri-tip. US$26.99 at the WIne Club in 2005. -- Amendment 8/27/12--WOW. Give this wine an hour's worth of air and magic happens. All the disjoint directions that the components take are harmoniously integrated to to provide a very graceful and very enjoyable wine. Wonderfully complemented our grilled Tri-tip.
