Pretty good juice. Very young in character but still very enjoyable. Lots of black pepper, currant, anise and cedar. Would be even better with snag of salty chips!

45+ minute decant and that was perfect. Definitely has years left in it, but not as many as you would think. Classic Bordeaux nose. Wine is filled with tar, graphite, cherry, and smoke. Medium plus finish. More power than I would have expected, but quite lovely.
