Sheame On You

Ruby with wide amber edges.  Warm, flabby burnt unctuous roundness of a roasted meat sort, hot oil and volatile.  An abrasive high note of MEK or rotten vegetal punctuates.  Slowly, it breathes in spicy interest, but quickly falls to fat depths.  I have been a fan of this wine numerous times but this is a shocking counter.  In the mouth, thin and uninteresting.  A simple bright fruit greets and then the whole thing heads South into dis-agreeable tannin.
