There are certain things in life I do not understand. Who thought Ishtar was a good idea? Do people really think the designated hitter makes for better baseball? And how does this wine keep getting 90+ ratings? Alas it’s wartime, demand is high, supply is low, and I was seduced by supply, rating, and time only to be disappointed once again. Tannic, herbaceous, one dimensional. A point deduction for the screw cap...

No mustiness in this bottle and looks like it’s following the excellent 2016 which Wine Spectator gave high score Will improve so will cellar several and see how it develops
