Bottle number 1644 of 6000 back in 2005. Major Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend, along with Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Double decanted and aerated for two hours. Deep garnet/ruby color with a clear rim.
At un-corking the nose is full of game blood; as the wine opens up; it evolves to scents of wood, blackberries, over ripe plum, sweet tobacco, and slight hints of dry spices.
After a couple of hours the mouthfeel is extremely balanced with iron, vanilla, jammy dark fruit, and dry mushroom. It is round and complex with dialed down alcohol, low but fresh acidity, supple tannings, and an enduring finish.
All in, this is a beautifully aged great old wine. I love it! — 2 months ago
