Popped and poured. This is still in a fairly big style, but no heat or obtrusive alcohol. Most nights, this would not be my choice of wine, but with fresh Alaskan sockeye salmon last night, this was a great pairing. Nose is big and redolent with berry, cherry, and five-spice. Good sappy fruit and structure, and plenty of acidity to keep the wine fresh. Good finish. I can definitely recommend this wine.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
