Either I got a flawed bottle or this has very much passed its prime.
I'm trying to understand the Bored Doe wines. Left coast and Aussie wines have been my staple. I shared this with a friend and we both thought it was a good example of St. Emilion wine. Softer fruit than a California merlot and much more terrior in the flavor. The finish was a little shorter than I would like. But at the price, I put a few bottles in the cellar.
