This evolves decently over a couple of hours. Starts off discombobulated: tight, spicy, and herbal-ish, but turns into a structured, more mature powerful red despite its eighteen year old age.

At about the two hour mark the color is purple to ruby. Pronounced initial intensity with with redcurrant, blackcurrant, plus ripe red and black plum; followed by black pepper, clove, cedar, and finally meat and game blood. Dry, medium acidity, medium tannings, high alcohol, full bodied with high flavor intensity and a lengthy finish.

Very good wine.
