Ruby in color. At first there seemed to be some TCA on the nose, but that blew off after about an hour. TCA, however, does not blow off, it gets worse, that must have just been some bottle stink of some kind. Eventually, it showed nice cherries with some nutmeg. On the palate, this has plums and slightly sour cherries. It is a bit candied as well. Clean after about an hour. Good acidity. Not sure if this was a proper bottle but it was nice. Retails for around $50.
