Amazing how great this was without any decanting or anything. Popped and poured to get some big fruit toward the end of the night and it did not disappoint.

I wish that it wasn't so spot on right now. A stand alone wine after dinner. Dark dark black fruit medium full body, a little leaner than years past. The balanced oak profile is hitting the spot. Perfect dessert.

Nothing has changed since I last opened one of these beauties. Filtered, aerated with Venturi, and decanted for an hour or so. Spectacular!

Spicy. Nice acids, full on the tannins. Color of rich dark berries. Nose that says cherries and apricots.
