This is an excellent wine, but it must breathe for several hours before tasting. My first impression of this wine was, quite frankly, somewhat repulsive. I had just cracked into the bottle and filled a glass without delay. The color is a dark purple, which gave me high expectations for flavor. After one sip however, I chalked it up to either a bad batch, or just an abhorrently bad wine. I couldn't even bring myself to finish that fist glass, it tasted like a rotten cigar. I corked the bottle and shelved the remainder. About 2 days later I decided I ought to toss it out, but I'm not one to waste vino, no matter how bad, so I decided to give it one more try. I poured a glass, let it sit for a couple of hours, then cut up some aged parmesan and gave it another shot. Wow, what a difference two days makes! It was fabulous! A friend showed up a few minutes later and we both relished the remainder of the bottle. And the cheese was the perfect accompaniment. I now consider it one of my favorite wines, but I won't let it pass my lips without at least a few hours of carafe-time beforehand.
