2016 Ledge James Berry Vineyard Red

The 14 months since my last bottle have not been kind to this wine. Red fruited on the nose. Bright red and blue fruits on the palate, lush. So far, so good. But the tannins are hard, the acidity seems excessive and it's all a bit out of balance. Finishes long, but a bit hot. It softens with a bit of air, but becomes rather simple berry flavors. Still a good enough drink, but disappointing considering where it was on release. "B"
