Decanted for one hour, paired with roast chicken. Ruby hue. Nose of violets, oyster shell, black cherry, raspberry, earth. Very fresh and bright on the palate with lush layers of bing cherry, black raspberry, iodine, mineral notes, and a bit of orange peel. Engaging acidity and smoothed out tannins leading to a long finish of winsome red fruit and hints of iron. Energetic and delightful for a wine over 2 decades old.
Medium body, fairly dark ruby with little browning or bricking. Nose is clean with only mild signs of age; on the palate this is lovely, elegant, medium cherry, restrained but flavorful, touch of fine tannins. Well balanced, fairly well resolved, not showing much tertiary character. A nice wine, very attractive though perhaps not particularly complex.
