We may have held this bottle just a tad too long, though it is still opening up so we may be surprised yet. When it was young it was heavy with dark purple fruit, and it has aged well It has become less robust and more sophisticated. The wine looks Garnet colored. The legs are Medium. It smells like Fig, Black currant (cassis), and White Pepper, though as it opens the fruit dissipates. It tastes like and Black currant, slightly tart, with a slight note of pencil lead. The body is Medium/Full.
taste: great feel that is more velvety with large amounts of white pepper, dark belgian chocolate, black cherries, and asian spice tones
overall: a really wonderful and full wine. Time has tamed it a bit and it has taken on some very interesting characteristics. a big and Bold white pepper+black cherry attack that finishes off with a dark belgian chocolate finish
