For most people this oak-aged SB is a love-it-or-leave-it type of wine, but in this case it falls somewhere in the middle. A largely neutral bouquet comes with resiny aromas of melon. This is round, smooth and soft in the mouth, with toasty, resiny apple, melon and bitter flavors. It's showing oxidation and age on the finish, meaning it's got one foot in the grave.
