Tar, raisin, soaked fig, cherry pit, wilted violet, hung meat, boudin noir, leather, cinnamon, cocoa powder, honey, truffle, scorched earth, roasted herbs, camphor, black tea. Wears the vintage well. More moderate frame (relatively speaking) showing some consistent grip throughout, surprised by the acid support this has, makes for a plausible argument about whether or not to continue aging. So tertiary and savory right now.

1999 drinking great right now. Lots of secondary characteristics and still great fruit.

actually was the white VV. a bit oxidized but still quite a bit going in with it. paired with yuzu cake and the acid in that worked.
