This felt incredibly young today... it actually felt younger and more complex than the '00 & '01 vintages of the same wine I drank in recent years! Outstanding nose. Very complex palate with spices, leather and a good concentration of dark fruits.
A wonderful wine, aged beautifully, gets better every year so far, dark red, rich fruit, just enough tanins for good structure, long spicy finish. Very little sediment. Excellent complement to our Italian roast beef dinner. Decanted for an hour before drinking. Luckily I have 4 more bottles left from a case that I bought about 18 years ago upon recommendation of the wine maker who visited our local wine festival.
