Chariot Gypsy Red `07 $ 5.99 ****

This is a complex wine. First sip, kind of harsh, sharp on the tongue, but I like it. I taste the hints of chocolate that all the oenophiles write about. This might be the first time that I really understand that reference. Like a bitter dark chocolate with a fruity finish.

What will it taste like after being aerated with the vinturi? Wow. What a change. Still good, but less of the sharpness. This is the kind of wine that the vinturi was made for. Elevating a $6.00 bottle of wine to a $20.00 bottle of wine.
