Plenty of acidity. Fruits are tired. Fine grained tannins. Hints of bell pepper. Dust and earth. Leather.

Dinner party, notes will be limited.
Bought from a restaurant closing about 5-6 years ago.
Menthol, mint, red pepper, steely, soft tannins but still good acid, our first 78 Bordeaux.

Fresh, herbal, red. Unlikely most folks would accept this amount of pyrazines in a young wine today, but at 40 years it elevates aromas of all kinds.
