I've held onto this one for 5.5 years. As unlikely as that sounds, I'm not sure the style of this one really would have been ready to go much sooner than now. Black inky pour. Nose of blackberry, black licorice. Entry of black fruits, blackberry currant, graphite, pie spice, surprising acidity. The middle shows that thick and well-integrated side of this wine. Tons of sediment on the finish. Although this wine is rocking right now, tannin seems to be dropping out at a really quick pace, so I would probably make the decision to drink these within a year.
