I had this wine again last night and I would generally concur with my earlier remarks, except the nose was quite nice last night. My last bottle and I wasn't overly impressed with either of them. Just OK.

Decanting over an hour.

"Nose: Great! Fresh strawberries. Sweet. Drying. Strong, deep back cherries.
Palate: Fresh cut strawberries, medium bodied, a little thin, acidic, edge-y, smooth, slightly astringent, light and lacks some depth and concentration, drying, a note of oxidative character"

Went nicely with the goat stew over polenta though!
