Not by choice, but necessity. This was one of many wines that had compromised corks.
But…it was good we opened it. The fruit still shines…vanilla and cherry cola notes, with hints of ginger, allspice, and black pepper on the nose.
On the pallet, the vanilla cola and cherry tobacco sing, thanks to balanced tannins and subtle acidity.
I think that this was the perfect time to enjoy this wine…even if it was not by choice. I guess the ‘verse just knows.
