Not as enjoyable as the last tasting. A bigger baked fruit character that overwhelms some of the more interesting floral and spice notes that are only just barely present. After evaluating the bottle I suspect this will hold for a few years but not significantly improve.
After a corked bottle several years ago, I opened this in trepidation after a number of other wines stored in the same place had been underwhelming. This was fruity, firm, with strong tannins and a deep core. Decent finish for a highly enjoyable wine.
