Guess I had this vintage 70 weeks ago, and I found another dusty bottle of this at my wine store. It’s just fantastic - so much life ahead. This is a generous wine, heavily extracted, just gobs of blackberry & cassis, licorice and vanilla - quite decadent. Big fleshy on palate, believe this had a good deal of Malbec in the blend. Has some finesse, well balanced and impressive length on finish. — 4 months ago
