Gamey, iron, blood, stewed fruit but smooth palate. Lots of funky goodness here.

It would be hard to say this bottle is 19 years old. Beautiful dark fruit, gaminess and smoked meat. I little va but it only helped add to the quality of the wine.

A little beat, honestly. This acts like generically old "fine" French wine in search of some crafty critic's poetry. But I am prosaic as fuck.

Maybe its just this bottle but this wine seems to be young & very primary with a lot of fruit left.
