Good right out of the bottle, and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

Dark red color, heavy tobacco nose, dark stone fruit and berry flavors, light mellow finish ight on tannin. Probably past peak for 2004 vintage but still very good. — 2 days ago
Very smooth and mellow. I would have liked a more tannic feeling but I let this age. Very crowd pleasing. Robust but not overwhelming. — 13 hours ago
