Parker Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

I tasted this wine blind, and wasn't quite sure what to make of it.  I also happened to find myself (voluntarily) watching the Royal wedding while drinking it, which surprised me more than a little too.  But back to the wine.  It had a reasonably complex aroma of pepper, plums, mint, leaves and oak.  On the palate, there was evident acidity, oak, plums and noticeable tannins too.  I thought the wine pretty sensible, but never really bonded with it.  86 points (7.1/10)

Abv: 14%
Price: around $35
Would I buy it having tasted it?  I'm honestly not sure.
