Popped and poured. Consumed over 90 minutes. Beautifully scented with cherries, raspberries, dried herbs, tar, and freshly bloomed magnolias on the nose. Flavors of tart cherries, black tea, and earth. I sort of expected this to come across more modern but this was actually rather charming! Tannin is well integrated. Good acid. Finish lasts for about 30 seconds. Drinking just fine right now but should hold well into the next decade.

1990. I expected it to blow my hair back a little more but still a solid wine.
