USA, Red Blend (60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot), Mondavi, Woodbridge, Lodi, 2009

N/ Pronounced vegetal and bell pepper (lessened by vigorous swirling). Stale plums and brick dust. Neither balanced, nor attractive.

T/ Medium-full to full mouthfeel. Chalky plum stew. Wet, black earth juice. The finish is surprisingly pleasant, given the sub par body. It is a sort of rhubarb stew with some woody notes.

Much improved on night two after vaccu-vin and refrigeration. She went from Fair to Good.
