This review is from the tasting of a half bottle. The rim of the wine (meniscus) was browning a bit, showing the wine had aged some. Upon first opening, I notice a lot of vanilla on the nose, although upon tasting the vanilla was wound tight and the finish was a bit astringent. After about 30 minutes, the vanilla opened and gave way to spice and worn leather. After 8 hours, the mouth feel and flavor were as if Ricola honey cough drops had been dissolved in the wine.
I had this wine twice recently. The first tasting showed a lot of fruit and some smoke. Medium to full bodied, with some finish. A pleasant wine. The second bottle was one dimensional, flat with some spice. An unpleasant experience. I would not expect this inconsistency with Groth. I will not buy this vintage again.
