It's only wine but I like it

A bit of a wild thing, here....loads of dark berry fruit with notes of dried meat, pepper, and black olives. Really complex and long. Real character in this wine. Enjoyable now now, but I supect even better in a year or two. Stellar value.

Great Frenchie. Kyrie Eleison, this wine reminds me of grade 8. It smells like a blended up mash of berries and dried herbs with a distinct hint of liquid paper. Yes liquid paper! You remember that smell. Who cared if you put an “E” before an “I” if it wasn’t after a “C” on your handwritten essay. Your reward was unscrewing that bottle of great smelling, mind altering letter corrector. As an adult, I’ll correct a bad day by getting slightly dizzy on a few glasses of this. Throw on some Mr. Mister and huff it up with a chunk of beef.

Really disappointed with this given the love across the board here. Very disjointed, heavy alcohol and awful bitterness on the tannins making it come across very cough syrupy. I can sense the underlying depth everyone here is enamored with, but the heat and tannins just make it way too awkward for me. Maybe I'm catching it at a bad time. Pass.
