I had a bottle of this wine several years ago and found it pleasant, but soft, unstructured, and woody. This recent bottle came across completely differently. While still on the demure and feminine side, there seemed to be much more depth, structure, and richness. Lovely varietal cherry-laden and earthy nose. Elegant yet rich and round in the mouth; good length. A lot of alcohol, but I didn't find it remotely intrusive. - HK 2011-07-20
