Daddy’s speeding. “Dandy Dad” is more like “drunk dad” with that whopping 14.5% alcohol level. Cork was almost starting to go on this bottle, but I opened it in time and the wine was still OK. Nose was corrupted a bit, but taste notes include black pepper, spinach and red fruit. As the wine breathed the vegetable notes grew more potent, but after 30 minutes they dissipated. This wine absolutely needs to breathe or be decanted.
