Great when you pour it in your glass for the first few minutes and then it just falls apart. Was really nice at one point in the past I am sure. The beginning was great.

Yes. Floral Nose and on palate. Just a bit past prime but it's lovely. Soft tannins. Classic older napa prune essence. Beautiful acidity. Basil and dill. Jarvis site, per Ryan's research, showed this 03 should drink well Thru '11. It's still showing well.

Decanted for an hour. Different flavor profile with different food. Kind of light and dry. Good wine.

Austere nose of red mulberries. Entry quite tight but falls to a quick mid-palette. Finish reminiscent of a Madeira.
May be drinking past its prime.
