In magnum. Smooth and elegant with black berries and not pat prime.

Showing its age in a graceful way, with bright red fruit wrapped in leather, earth, and a touch of flowers. I liked it more than others who prefer younger wines.

Oxidized and past its peak. But still complex and drinkable.

Singing like Daryl Hall. Sappy Grenachiness in spades. Shows a prominent black pepper/herbal savoriness to match the sweet fruit. This has aged beautifully.

Drink now. Crossed apex but still a wonderful mature CDP. Feminine but drinking glorious with ripe earth notes underpinning cherries and figs. Yummy.

Phwew. This is a superb wine. Wife bought it 20 years ago and cellared it since then. Lots of fruit for a 22 year old wine. Good amount of tannins-sharper than a Bordeaux. Lots of aid to go with food, but I'm enough of a fan of the style and particular wine in particular to drink it after dinner. This one is a '94.

Could definitely age it for longer because it has the structure. The wine pros on Delectable also seen to indicate that 1985's are drinking particularly well right now.

Just singing. This wine never gets tired. Fruit, tannins, balance ... all in harmony.
