I am a casual wine drinker, so my comments are probably not for connoisseurs.

I've had several bottles of this. This wine is excellent, among the best I've had, right after the cork is removed. It is very tannic, but that is very well balanced by the amount of fruit it has. It seems very fragile though. Aafter just one day of storage with private preserve, both using a fridge, and without a fridge, all the fruit disappears, and it turns into a dog strangling tannic mess. The same thing happens after storing an unopened bottle on the shelf for a month (presumably due to the heat). So, drink this right after you buy it, or keep it a temperature controlled fridge. And when you do pull the cork, finish it as fast as possible.
Drink from 2010 to 2010
