Medium red, faded at the rim. Sensational nose that shows both red and black fruits combined with spice that absolutely intoxicates! Medium body, there is a refined elegance to this wine that lets you know you are dealing with class. Beneath the fruit there are herbal notes and a slight leafy-ness. The body is smooth and long and caresses the palate. The finish was long initially but towards the end of the meal it seemed to fall off a bit. In reading the other notes here I cannot help but wonder if they were dealing with bottles subject to less than ideal storage. This bottle had sat on its side at 56 degrees since purchase in 2000 and was absolutely stunning. www.advinetures.ca
From a 375. These definitely should be drunk soon. This one was in between the other two -- nose of anise. Taste of medium strong anise, chocolate, old leather. If you like em old you will like this. I generally do, but this seems a bit too tired out. Not much left to support.
