    WIMLNR

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Off nose. Second bottle in a row for this wine that seems off. Flavors of plums and berries perhaps if you can get past the aromas. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. I guss drink over the short term if not a long time ago. Having a bad record with this vintage of this wine.
