    Maybe I got a bad bottle, but I was looking forward to this wine based upon its ratings and review. When I opened the bottle, The first two things I noticed were the beautiful color of the cork and the wine. The wine had decent legs, but upon sniffing the cork, I knew I was about to be let down. The cork smelled slightly vinegary, the bouquet was similarly hinting heavy handed on acid and tannin. Upon sipping the wine I noticed that the cork and bouquet belied the true nature of the wine. The tannins and acid were heavy handed, so much so that I could barely taste any of the undertones. I definitely won't buy this again. I'll still to my Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Sauvignons.
