This village wine is coming into its own. There's earthy, smoky elements that blend with still prominent fruit, and are framed by maturing, softening tannins. Quite easy to drink through at a rapid clip. I see no danger in holding this for quite a while longer, but certainly enjoyed drinking it now.
This bottle was much better than the last few. Now into it's prime drinking period. Still a somewhat short finish, but the nose is now open, the fruit fresh, and an altogether good wine for a village wine.
