Purchased at auction. Initially had a lot of barnyard boquet, which partially blew off within 20 minutes. Fruit was jammy, tannins soft. Bit of mint, plumps, tobacco. The wine constantly changed over the next two hours making for a most interesting companion to the always amazing tasting meal at Bacchanalia.
Decanted and enjoyed within 10 minutes. Floral bouquet, Rich creme de cassis and exotic spice, beautiful weight, pure fruit, long finish, deep purple color. Will drink great for another decade or more.
