We picked up ours at the downtown Hookset NH Pkg Store two weeks ago for $13.99 U.S. Because you don't see aged out wines laying in a rack very often, we were very concerned that it had cooked in the infamous NH warehouse. No problem!
It was dark ruby red to the eye. It had a lovely aroma of black fruit and spice, that carried over to the tongue tip. Deep blackberry, plumy, raisiny, smokey spicy nuances in the fruity and earthy complexity. Light oak and tannins with the slightest edge was included in what raced across the palate and contributed to a languishing finish.
Matched it with sauteed loin ends in Morton Rub, finger rolls, and salad. Excellent!
