no formal note. This bottle was past its prime. Whatever tannins were there have enchained or dechained out of existence leaving it like a one note tuning fork with a single note but off key. Drinkable and more or less lovely for what it is. Maybe it'll grow a bit tonite but I doubt it.
A little short on the midpalate, but with great minerality and dark berry intensity. This fattened up a little as the night it went on, but never quite found balance on the midpalate. A nice oak treatment, although there were some wood tannins poking out at the beginning of the finish. If things come together, this will drink beautifully in two or three years. 50+4+12+16+8=90
