This shows some bricking. Classic cabernet cassis (black currant)fruit. Fennel, hints of cedar, a nice dusty/gravel note. Tannins are soft (almost plush) and open. Acidity builds as it opens up. This hit its peak on night two after remaining fairly reticent on the first evening. The third evening it was singing nicely but lacked the intensity of the second night.

Tasting blind in a flight of 2001 and shined in the line up. Beautifully integrated and heart warming.
