Me, three. I gave this wine a try at least four times. The first time I thought maybe I just hadn't let it settle from shipping, the second time, I decanted the hell out of it, the third time, decanted and tried again the next day.
All three times, same issues, super leathery, in a bad way, really awful finish. The longer is decants the mellower it gets, but it's still not great. Second day it's slightly better, but no one in my house ever wants to drink it.
I think I wrote about this on the original offer discussion.
Forth try, just last week, I tried serving it at a party to more indiscriminate drinkers and they didn't like it either. I did't say anything about the wine, I just served it. I ended up using the rest of that bottle for sangria.
I must admit, it makes a mighty tasty sangria.
My two remaining bottle will go straight into sangria. I am done with this wine.
