Past peak, but still has a great nose of loam, high cocoa dark chocolate, and celery leaf. Palate has lost its fruit expression, fully integrated, with slightly astringent. acidic quality on the finish.
Drank with xmas dinner. Dark purple, inky color, nose of dark fruit, black raspberries. Medium to full bodied, lots of fruit remaining--plums, black currant, pepper and some spice. A big, juicy wine perfectly suited to today's meal, and still with life left in its old bones.
