Good for Parker for finding so much pleasure in this wine. If you Pop and pour this wine, you will be surely disappointed, so make sure you give it a long decant - 3 hours or longer. After that, the funky cheap wine smell dissipates and flowery rose petal, cherry and mineral notes show. The palate is medium weight and dry, but with some sweet dried plum notes on the finish.
