Thanks @Mike Smith for the decant recommendation.

Dark ruby red with garnet edges. Lovely nose with black fruits, dark spices, and anise. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Dark berries with some underlying gravel. Excellent structure and some spices too. Super long finish. Decanted for 6 hours and needed more. Drink till 2025.

Inky black, took 8 hour decant to start opening up. Been open 24 hours and drinking amazing. Some producers knocked it out of the park in '06, this is one of them.

Really opened up after 40. Shows a little more tannin than 6 months ago. Baby fat must be fading finally.

Decanted for 4 hours prior to tasting. Color was an opaque ruby red with purple hues. Nose was still tight and closed up with light cassis. Quite a bit of heat on the palate while being slightly fruity (cassis). Moderate tannins 6/10, smooth, complemented with a moderate body (6.5/10). Finish lingers and is a little dry.
