Popped, decanted for mild sediment, poured and drank. Deeply purple to slightly blood colored in glass. clear and clean, and definitely showing its age already. very ripe perfumed nose of black berry fruit, flowers I can't put my finger on, and a slight eucalyptus note which is very appealing. The acidity from the sangiovese remains at a medium level, which balances the ripeness of the cabernet well, and some soft tannins are felt on the mid pallet. blackberry, under-ripe plum, tobacco/cedar flavor lasts for a well balanced finish. I agree that this may have been better in it's youth, but this is balanced, and quite enjoyable to drink-up now.
