Excellent wine. Popped (unscrewed?) and poured, it took about an hour to open up and really show its stuff. Very nice nose. Not at all hot, very smooth and easy to drink. Just the right amount of acidity, it went well with the spiced pork chops we had for dinner. Lots of dark cherry, a little orange peel, cola and spice. this was my last bottle and I wish it wasn't.
