Still not ready. Though this is a 09, it has not et it's potential. The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like black currant (cassis), plum and strawberry jam. It tastes like blackberry, cherry and black pepper. The body is medium/full. The wine has coarse texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.
Decanted about an hour, tasted over the next 24. Large amount of sediment, some of it very coarse. Tannins nicely integrated. Depth & intensity of the fruit was lacking. Not a flawed wine by any means, but not enough for the price point.
