Nose of black cherry, licorice, touch of saddle leather and cigar box, same on the palate, delicious tasting on the third night after opening and tasting 2 days earlier, big body, round, supple fruit, very tasty, easily last another 10 years, not sure it will improve much more, long finish, Bordeaux for under $60 makes it a winner in my cellar.
While the wine might not be gaining in complexity, the chocolate, sweet, black cherry, truffle and cigar wrapper notes are already charming. Where the wine already shines is on the palate, as the texture continues to soften, adding more silky touches as the wine fills out. If you own it, this is a good time to start popping your corks. The bottle was decanted for about 30 minutes at most. This is definitely ready to go.
