    Bathus--Amateur Wine Philosopher (4/18/2013)
    Passable, but non-descript. Almost indistinguishable from other (cheaper) Columbia Valley merlot-based reds. Decent acid and minerality, but this was obviously meant to be a "fruit-forward" style of wine. Unfortunately, the fruit is already fading, and this bottle went downhill very noticeably on day two, although it was vino-vacced and stored in fridge, which does not bode well for cellaring much longer. Perhaps this wine was already dying an early death before it ever reached my house, because you cannot be be sure whether a wine released several vintages ago was well-stored before you bought it. I should be more cautious about purchasing non-recent vintages of unknown provenance. Drinkable, but disappointing for the price.
