Opened 3 hours before pairing with our last grilled Santa Maria Tri-tip roast for this year. An opaque brilliant ruby in the glass with edges just starting to thin, the nose beckoning with a mix of red, blue and black fruits, roasted meat, mushroom, thyme and some soil. Very good intensity and concentration leading to a 20+ second finish. Very nice, and at 13 years of age seems to be about halfway through its maturity. Drink now or hold.
