I must put a plug in for Wine.com. We ordered two bottles and one came with a leaking cork. Wine.com quickly replaced the bottle and told me to keep the leaking one. I opened it and found that the cork was cracked the full length, obviously a manufacturing defect. We decided to drink it anyway and it was luscious. If a properly sealed bottle tastes better than this, I have found my new favorite wine. We grilled a steak and decided that we were in the best restaurant in town. We allowed it to sit for 3 hours prior to drinking. Dark fruit particularly berries, very complex with soft tannins that make you know that it will last. I am hooked on this wine and wine.com.
