An off bottle story
Apr 27, 2008
1 star 1 star
I have had the pleasure of having this bottle many times over the last few years. All have been amazing despite reports of bottle variation. This occasion was clearly the excpetion as this,sadly, was not very good.  (From a .375) There was a very powerful nose of asian spices, soy, and mushrooms, but no fruit. No fruit anywhere. The palate was hallow and empty. The nose and palate, despite its complexity, was very off-putting with the abscenseof fruit. Color was lighter and body was clowdy. This was clearly a bottle that suffered some damage along the way. Could these be one of the bad bottles we hear of?  This wine is normally a mid to mid-high 90s wine.

had this wine with dinner at rosemary's restaurant in viva las vegass.  paired with a perfectly cooked grilled veal tenderloin, the wine was in its element.  very earthy and spicy on the nose (all spice) with a plush mouth that was fully frooty and a sweet lingering finish.

 

5 starzz outta 5 starzz for the wine and the pairing and the restaurant.

Grab some really good cheese and a nice fresh plate of assorted fruit. This wine has a great red color to it that is great. There is also a hint of purple in it to.

The aroma went so nice with the fruit we had with it. The aroma was sweet and had a hint of licorice. 

Also there was a scent of blackberries.  The body was so full. This wine was a great complement to the cheese we had with as well as the fruit.

This wine is almost black in its coloring. There is a red and purple to the coloring as well.

The aromas in this full bodied wine are nice. there is an almost roasted smoky aroma followed by truffles, cherry, and Herbs.

This wine lacked structure and had a full body.

Scents of truffles, black berries, and cassis.

The lack of structure is a turn off. But the full body makes up for that.
