Monday, March 21, 2011 - popped and poured. Deep garnet, nose almost cliche bordeaux with noticeable cigar box, plums, but a whiff of green pepper. nose also showing some alcohol. on palate the fruit is tight, somewhat tart but there is richness that suggests some patience will be rewarded.
second day (corked overnight) nose showing more leather and prunes and some chocolate notes on palate. still good.
