Deep ruby in color. Bursts with sour cherry, cedar, savory tobacco and leather. Neither gamey nor oxidized. Tannin and fine and silly and finishes with lithe acidity.

Hasn't peaked. Soft black fruit with great balance. Lingers. I personally love the hint of white pepper

1999. Rich nose, nice and earthy, with a hint if sweetness, vanillaish touch as goes down. Nice crispy taste although layered with aromas. Sharp after taste, a bit too dry for me. Overall excellent value for money
