Smooth & Supple
I have been drinking wine for a while but I am not an expert by any means, perhaps still a newbie after all these years. My wife and I don't appreciate strong tannin in our red wine. Usually I am able to soften the tannin by aging it for at least a year or longer. For best taste I store it in a cool dry place for 2-3 years and then even a reasonably priced red wine tastes awesome. Well I am not all that patient all the time and I sometimes open a bottle of red wine before it matures. I did the same with this half bottle. I was not disappointed! Tannin is not pronounced and you taste the actual wine. The half bottle is a very convenient size when you are drinking it with dinner without company. You don't have to worry about storing the leftover wine and wasting it if it is not consumed in a week.
