Opened a bottle of this wine today for the first time, and was puzzled. According to Rogov's TN (in the last edition of his guide), I was expecting to
taste a muscular wine reflecting 24 months in French oak, with chewy tanins and plum and tobacco notes. However, what I've got was very different:
light brick in color. very light body, no oak felt. Pleasant acidity. Reminds of rose, rather than of red.
Has anybody tasted this wine?
