91-92. A better bottle than the last one I had -- this one was still hitting all the high notes, 10 years in. At that age, and with its high ABV, it's actually kind of amazing how well this has aged, how structured and restrained it seems. Cherry, some baking spice, soft tannins. Served with roast pork shoulder and they ran off together.
Big nose of cherries. Delicious soft tannins fill the mouth. Elegant, silky with deep red fruits, earth and smoke. Wonderful lingering finish. (Doris loved this wine even though "tannins a little big")
