2009 Little James' Basket Press: Definite secondary wine, if that

nov. 7, 2010: we brought home the last quarter of the 2006 santedame chianti classico, finished it and decided we could stand to open another. so we tried this little james' basket press solera, which in all fairness was better than the other one we had opened more than a month ago after buying it at sahara mart in bloomington. greg's immediate reaction was to a nose that reminded him of a barnyard, while the flavor was both sweet and sour cherry. i thought the nose was tannic and a bit sour. the flavor was not very distinctive, but it reminded me of a malbec without the roughness. this is a secondary wine, definitely, but not one that i'd get again. 13.5 percent alcohol.
