Sagelands Is Worth the Wait

I've been eying Sagelands for months now, but I'd never heard anything about it so I thought it was a bit risky to spend $8 on it. Today I finally gave in and bought it for $7.99 at Fred Meyer.

Even without decanting or drinking out of a proper glass it was enjoyable. (I'm embarrassed to admit that I used a coffee cup because all my wine glasses were dirty. Now that I'm in my own apartment and not cooking as much, I tend to go days before I have a full load to run the dishwasher.) It's a warm hearty wine with strong fruit flavors and rich smooth tannins.

I think that if you were patient and let this wine breath first it would open up quite a bit. If you try it, let me know what you think!
