From a good looking bottle with a top shoulder fill. Old red tawny color with light amber rims. Translucent. A nose that makes you smile. Notes of black cherry, forest floor, worn leather and a little barnyard funk that makes it exciting. In the mouth it’s still showing some fruit and it needs lots of air to soften its acidity and structure. By itself it’s good. With food it’s better. Don’t think it will improve with more age but given it was at its best after 8 hours of air, bottles like this tell you it can hold on for many more years.

Dark fruit. Very broad and opulent. With a lot of air, the tannins have resolved. Still a bit of a monster of a wine but the fruit is intense and very pretty. Lovely stuff.

Deep brick red with a ruby hue. Lovely age on the nose with leather, dusty, mushrooms, dried cherries and a little dirty diaper. Medium tannins (6/10) and full bodied. Layered palate with notes of dried cherries, leaves, forest floor and truffles. Long finish. Drink till 2045.
