Cranberry, cassis, persistent tannin. No bricking, no fading at the rim. If anything, this tastes austere. How is this 24 yrs old?!

Fun stuff. Changes every five minutes. Wasn't a leaker, but the label makes it look like that infamous Moscow hotel bed allegedly violated at the behest of he who shall not be named. Settling into a brambly, tart cherry, kirschy thing. Thankfully no ammonia...

Nicely done Joel Peterson. Feels like the dusty love child of youngish Giacosa Barbaresco and aged Cabassaou. Singular, special and singing.
