Big young fruity bord. Dark in glass, some fine sed. Appeared you on first tasting to have an almost grapiness to it. Shallow mid palate with resolved tannins gave it a soft mouth feel. Mellow acidity. Fun from age perspective, strange profile for bord. Not offensive. Not sure if flawed vs old?
Need to stop drinking this for another year or two! See how it evolves further. Smokey French nose; earth, wood, leather, cocoa; nice balance of acids, tannins; Cab-Merlot flavors; long fruity finish. w/Peruvian beef dish. 12.5 alcohol so wonderful with food.
For more on the Peruvian dish: Lomo saltado Lomo saltado is a popular, traditional Peruvian dish, a stir fry that typically combines marinated strips of sirloin, or other beef steak, with onions, tomatoes, and other ingredients, served with fried potato slices and rice.
