Our notes:

Sunnie: I don’t like it.

Audrey: Wow, already? Why?

Sunnie: I don’t like it.

Audrey: Oh, this is weird, you’re right. Not very drinkable for college kids. Although it does have a higher alcohol content than most wines.

Sunnie: Well maybe the flavor’s too young. I think it will mellow down the flavor if we drink it after 2-3 years.

Audrey: Gasoline. I taste gasoline…

Sunnie: Maybe we should chill it. Maybe that’ll improve the flavor.
