Sadly, this has not held up. It was purchased on release and well stored since then. It is still drinkable but really not why anyone would buy this wine. Silver/gold in color. The nose is problematic. Someone described it as peanut butter and that is close. I found it more like the skins on roasted peanuts. In any event it is odd. Others found it worse. Perhaps a bit better on the palate, but mostly nondescript. This was probably much better 6 years ago. If you own any, no harm in opening now, but have a back up bottle.
