Superb. Pristine and pure, medium framed, fully mature and impeccably fresh. Red Cassis and plum fruit, dried cherry, pipe tobacco, cigar smoke, cedar, forest floor, menthol, damp mushroom, peat, turned earth. For a fleeting moment I found myself falling back in love with Napa Cabernet.

Super elegant. Cassis, earth, leather, cedar, eucalyptus. Fresh berries, gripping but elegant tannins

30 min decant (decent fine/chunky sediment). A splended medium dark garnet with some bricking. On the nose: plum, sweet aged cab perfume, musky wet forest floor, eucalyptus, crushed rocks, and smoke. Taste: soft, smooth, delicate, med plus body wine with a little red fruit, leather, cedar, and a herbaceous bitter chocolate finish. What a treat!!! to drink this 12.5% alc, 32 year old wine. Still kicking, even though on the downside. Cheers!

This is on another level. Nose of rhubarb, savory fennel seed. Tannins are integrated, but this has a long life with positive upside ahead.
