Quick post: Flood Plain Proprietary Red Wine 2005

Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. Note: needs to be decanted to taste the pure essence of this wine.

Nose: Black cherry, Blackberries, Blueberries, definitely fruit-forward with hints of mushroom in the mix.

Taste: Blackberries/cherries, round tannins on finish, good initial attack, mid is a little hollow when you pop and pour, but after a couple of hours of being opened, the mid is just as good as the rest of the weight of this wine. The finish is also long and carries with it a hint of pepper to accompany the red fruit.
This is a very good bottle for the price, and if you can find it, try it, and buy a case, Trust me.
