This remains a rather dark and brooding wine that would best be consumed with food. Licorice, plum, and a damp wood aroma come through on the nose. The palate comes across with some red fruits along with tar, damp earth, and oak. Acidity could definitely be higher and the finish could be longer. Still, this shows well at ten years from vintage.
A LastbottleWines.com purchase. Candied red fruits, licorice, spice, earth. Screaming deal for $17. Started drinking with about a 2 hour decant and it just got better from there. Drink or hold. There's plenty of life left in this little gem.
