I spent the better part of the day taking phone calls…long phone calls. However, they were productive, so all was not lost.
The cork was a tad soft and proved a challenge to remove. The wine had a dark garnet color that I was happy to see. There was a slight hint of fruit on the nose but the first taste was truly non descriptive. So we let it sit for a while and tried it again. Like the first bottle, the flavor of cherry started to come through along with earth and musk. Unlike the first bottle, this one went flat very quickly.
