Pale garnet; warm brick, worn leather, shows bottle age/maturity but also vitality; mellow, yet retains peppery punch, full bodied; finishes powerfully with typical heft. This deepened & added weighty over several hours. Plenty of time in hand, as long as fruit holds.
Very nice bottle. This was probably a big wine when it was young. It's fairly mellow now, still some nice dark fruit, plum and cassis. There's a little herbal quality as well. The tannins are very smooth now. Very enjoyable and easy to drink now.
