Liked it initially but the more I drank it, the more I realized that the finish was unresolved tannins and a little bitter dark plum.

Spicy, a little barnyard-y. 2005 vintage tasting a little flat, drink sooner than later. Latent floral/lily aromas.

Tannin needs more time to soften and integrate with the plums.

Drank 2005 quite a few times recently which is very good, dark fruit, hint of vanilla, cigar box, savory. I agreed the wine is about high on tannin, but it taste great and balance after decant for about 30 mins or so.

Great start but the tannins catch up fast. Would buy again.
