2 hour decant. Clear deep inky purple color and full bodied with high acidity. Clean medium intensity nose of dark bramble fruit, anise and earth notes. Black berry, anise, leather and earth on the palate leading to a smooth moderately tannic finish. Drinking very well and paired superbly with the home smoked brisket we had for dinner.

Much more approachable than when I last tasted this vintage 2 years ago. The once harsh chewy tannins have mellowed and now form a fine tannic structure on the finish. Dark inky purple in color and full bodied. There are still nice levels of dark bramble fruit and leather and earth notes leading to a smooth medium long finish. Went very well with the beef short ribs we had for dinner!
