Rustic is a great word to describe this wine. A very dry & savory wine. Old bookstore. There is some fruit but you really have to dig for it. I ran it through an aerator and it helped a bit. I recommend decanting for at least 2 hours and drinking it with food (rich red meat). I think I will grab a couple more bottles, stick 'em in the cellar and pull one out in a year or two, see how it loosens up. Price is right and for the extra $5 it's much better than the CH. Ducla.
