Not a big fruit-juice wine as in other years. Floral and new strawberries aroma, not very expressive flavors. Clunky tannins crying out for light, salty food.

    Upon first opening, I found it head-achey and heavy on the tannin. You know, one of those wines that give signs that a headache is on the way. Because I limited my consumption to a few sips, the headache remained borderline. The next day, it seemed to be smoother and fruitier for having gotten some air, I suppose. I enjoyed it with roasted honey ham, but it is overpriced at $10.
