My wife and I opened this very bottle last night (we wanted to taste along with you!) Similar tasting notes, though I was digging a background hint of maraschino cherry. Not complex, but varietally standard and straightforward. My issue was that the longer the wine stayed in the glass, the more persistent the oak became. I wonder if that's because it was such a marginal year for reds -- the fruit couldn't stand up to the wood.

There was a bit of a brickish edge to the color, and I'd say this was the lightest color red I've ever seen in the glass. A wild contrast to their opaque Black Russian.

By the way, we have a bit left so it will be fun to see if our bottle is utterly shot on day two like you say your bottle was.
