Aaron: This gets better after being open for a day but at first sip this was definitely a disappointment for me.  The nose was extremely earthy with mostly mushrooms, dirt, and figs.  The flavor was equally dirty with mud and forestry.  There was a noticeable lack of berries and fruit.  The best quality was the fullness, which I appreciated, but not juicy enough for me.  86 points

Teri: Aaron was the only one who tried this bottle. From his notes, I don’t think I missed much.
