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

There’s a certain amount of finesse in this powerful bottle. Bold upfront dark fruit and an underlying but present tannin structure.

Give a little time to breathe when first opening. Still has aging potential. Still fresh a day after opening.

Muscular black fruit with an amazing mid palate and finish. Wine has many years ahead but why wait.
