Opened and poured, this bottle gave another excellent showing. This wine has developed somewhat since its release with the youthful, vibrant fruit shedding some of its more primary characteristics. Otherwise this wine remains consistent with previous experiences.
Shows the ripeness of the vintage, though there is nice structure lurking underneath that should offer a nice foil to the chubby fruit in a few year's time. Warm earth and spice frame the plum fruits in well enough, but I can't help but wish for a little more freshness and acidity here.
I thought this showed well considering the vintage. Dark profile with warm spice and some gamey characteristics. Full and rich dark red fruits with some fine grain tannins. Seems a bit weighty but not over the top. A bit clumsy and lacking freshness but has the stuffing for some sideways time.
