Top o’ the Heap

Not a horrible wine, but feels manipulated and fake. Starts off sharp and thin after a soggily-vegetal, electrical fire nose, immediately going robust oaky abrasion but without serious fruit commitment. Non-existent tannin. Assuredly a special-client bottling for airline or hotel and safely in the crowd-pleaser category.
