It's only wine but I like it

This is simply an excellent wine. Excellent fruit, lots of regional charater and very good structure. Although one can drink this now, the tannin is fairly prominent and I should think that a few years in the cellar will really benefit this wine. Expect the warm character to really be enhanced as the tannin softens. Great value. Vintages, though I bash them frequently, have really come through with several wines in recent releases with fine regional character for under $20.
