Originally bought for a cross commune, horizontal blind tasting in preparation for the MW exam, this has been waiting in the cellar. Decided to decant for Christmas dinner w beef and mini Yorkshire puddings.
Very complex nose with cedar, tobacco, black plum and dried berry notes. Elegantly resolved in the mouth, plush even. Interestingly this wine threw both tannin sediment and tartaric crystals.

A brilliant effort. Still on the upswing. Tannic, yet displays uncommon, smooth lines. Saddle leather and cherry compote bring up the rear. Zero rush with these bad boys...

Leaner style, but overall tasty. Dark currants, cedar. Would have been better with a fatty steak.
