Remarkable how this has held together considering the abuse the bottle when through. A light green quality runs through suggesting it may have been quite angular in its youth. A very delicate black fruit quality and rich tannins still running through.

Bright, funky, and dirty. VA, spice, carob, and flat acid finish.

Blinded and whiffed it big time. Aldo Sohm tricked me again. Really lovely wine, tastes far younger than it is.
