@jshaver checks in with a Lab Rat report proclaiming ... the wine benefits from food, and I would not hesitate to serve it with dinner, but myself, would not drink it on its own. Hope to revisit and and some notes tomorrow.
@larsrulz Lab Ratting for SWMBO, relays that She had had it on its own for the first half glass, but enjoyed it more with dinner - would go well with something with a bit of spice or peppery flavor. She felt it rather tannic and still a bit young - could handle a few years to age and mellow out some. Bottle mentions the dark chocolate and that was the clearest aspect of the flavor profile. It also had tastes of cherries and raspberries, specifically the tart portions of those flavors profiles. It had hints of alcohol when first opened, but most of that was lost with giving it 45 minutes to breath in the glass. Was a good wine, but we aren’t normally Merlot types.
