Dare say this was way better than the last bottle I had about 2 or 3 years ago. This was kind of a forgotten gem in the cellar that I found last Friday. A little vegetal from cork pop had me worried but this wine blew off in 20 minutes and showed great terroir and classic aged foresty black notes emerged. Lots of body was here and very ample fruit. Finish showed completely resolute tannin. Very silky finish. Great with olive and mushroom marinara. Probably slightly in decline at this point. It quite a delight tonight at 10 years old.
