It took a little while and a lot of air but this finally showed us its elegant side but it’s close to the end for this one...

Wine is certainly past it’s price . Has a definite licorice on the nose and not much red fruit on the pallet. black tea and leather come to mind but the wine is enjoyable and still in balance at age 19. During yesterday!

Past it’s prime? Not a great bottle? Hard to tell which but this was ok to start, much better from say 45-90mins after opening, and then fell off really quickly.

Awesome. Green olive on the nose. Gamey, full bodied mouthcoating. Smooth finish slightly peppery.
