It needed an hour of breathing after decanting, then opened up to currant flaovors, with tannic structure left, but all the edges smoothed. This wine has aged nicely. My guest loved it and would rate it higher.
Ruby colored with a hint of brown. On the nose sour cherry, barnyard, and saddle leather. Nice layering of red fruits. Smooth and complex. Finish is smooth without any tannin ending with a hint of sour and tart. Past its prime but still a nice wine. Decanted in the glass for 25 minutes.
