This is really drinking well tonight( opened yesterday) with rich, unctuous cassis, pipe tobacco, brambly underbrush, leather and firmish, chalky tannins on the long finish. I think this wine is firmly in its drinking window but is still youthful with a long life ahead of it.
Drinking very well now. Had this about 7 years ago and it was great. It's better now. Nicely balanced with plenty of fruit to go around. Integrated tannins. Dark berry flavors. Very nice wine. Drink now-2018
Dinner at the Palace. Very good pairing with medium rare lamb chops. I like this wine more than the more resent professional reviews. I could smell the cedary nose as soon as I poured a glass. Very smooth and resolved.
