Very tight upon opening....sour and tannic. Completely changed after 90 minutes in the decanter. Black cherries with some vanilla creaminess. A little heavy on the oak. Long finish. Still has years left in the bottle.
Tasted April 21, 2007 at an offline. Tasted from a Spiegelau Authentus Magnum glass. Dark garnet color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of black licorice, black currants and white pepper. Chewy red currants on the palate followed by some red berries. Light acidity, medium tannins, light to medium body. Drink over the short term.
