My wife grabbed another bottle of this wine from the recesses of the cellar while I was out - I'd've waited a couple more years. I didn't taste it until the second night after opening, when it showed a fantastic ration of flavor intensity to alchol, with vivid, almost edgy acidity and tannins, some cedar, bit of stem wood, along some fruity unctiousness in the aromas and textures. A remarkable wine, surprisingly powerful. I sipped it, but it should shine especially brightly with a good, fatty red meat dish - rib-eye or lamb stew, say. Purchased on release for about $25-28.
