BOOM! There it is. The perfect pairing with 3-day-old cold tater-tot leftovers. Huge tired nose blows off quickly. Deep garnet. High spicy note. Ample fruit and balance. Would have been perfect 2yrs ago. Still totally good… but… definitely on the decline fast-track. On closeout for less than $1/yr and I HAD to try it. But am thinking No to it’s 11 sisters remaining on the shelf. Still, interesting.
