Dark sweet aromas of bell pepper, earthy, and dried dark berries. Edgy rustic mouthfeel with black fruit character, sharp acids, and a drying structure. Good gamey earhiness, yet angular and a bit hard. Nice wine, but not spectacular. 92
Good Wine, Good Steak (Tampa FL): Bottle stored perfectly for decades. Very good overall combination of mushroom and remaining black fruit along with spice hints on nose and palate. Good flavor, just simpler/ faded structural elements mad this some what shorter and simpler than some of the nuanced older wines in this flight.
