Sappy and juicy, provides excellent drinking. The generous oak that showed in the past has now receded considerably, and the wine as a whole is much more integrated. Drink now and over the next few years.
Started out a bit dusty and I was worried it was dead, but that blew off. The cork on this wasn't great, so maybe this was an advanced bottle. This wine is a little past prime, but still enjoyable. Dark fruit with fading energy. Not dead yet, but I'd drink up…at least based on this tasting.
