The wine is taking a long time to blow off the funk but the elegance is shining through - color has not broken down but not fruit forward which I am glad - structure still in tact 19 years later and finish is softer than I desire but bottom line drinking and enjoying and helping me absorb shitty music like John Denver my wife is playing / I pray her playlist ends soon / this wine is not to be enjoyed by itself like I am doing as I started a diet so no cheese 😢 / this is not going to age and get better so enjoy if you have - just a little smile tonight

Decant for a long time - this tastes a big pot roast with all the trimmings - not special - fruits abs spices galore but still has acidity and little tannic but not definitely big flavor so smiling

A little age, a lot of complexity with blackberries, black currants, and plenty of tertiary aromas of leather, cedar, graphite, and damp earth. Great balance of acidity, medium tannins and fruit, very well integrated oak, and ready to drink now.

I'm reminded of why I love 2000 Bordeaux. This wine is at its peak right now throwing all kinds of aromatics. Dried currents, espresso roast, and suede, to name a few. Very very complex. High, well integrated tannins.

Fig, venison, truffle, and herbal components on the nose carry through to the tongue. Cranberry and cassis pick up on the palate with some medium weight tannins. Drink in 5-8 years (2020-2023)
