Please Say Never

Dark garnet out to thin amber edges.  Big cream soda nose never quite goes away, morphing to sweet icing and fat vege-burger and mayonnaise.  An awkward nose, crumb-cake and vanilla, browned butter.  Green beans browned in butter.  This is one of the worst wines I have had in months.  In the mouth a dull wet-paper mash accented with bitter acid and awkward, meaty nuances.  It never comes around to anything even the most water-carrying cold-climate fan could convince themselves to endorse.  Blind, I would peg this for Oregon Pinot.  Which is both a compliment and and slap.  Thin of fruit and miserably unbalanced.  A streak of heat overwhelms whatever crappy version of tannin was supposed to be built into this thing.  An oxidized afterthought of fruit makes certain you remember this wine forever.
