I was getting a hint of cherry on the nose. The taste was okay, perhaps the balance was off, a little on the acidic side. After about 45 minutes in the bottle, the acidity balanced out but the complexity did not improve. If you buy this wine, I suggest to decant for 30 to 45 minutes. This is a good reasonable priced wine, but if you are hoping to taste many secondary notes, do not get your hopes up.
