Has peaked and is on a gentle downward glidescope, but is still capable of giving considerable pleasure. Attractive nose of blueberries, raspberries and vanilla extract; which continue on the very soft palate (picking up other dark berries as well), with almost nil tannins and low acid, and yet remains pleasurable and not out-of-whack despite imparting a sense of sweetness to boot. I have had over-the-hill, peaked highly-extracted California wines, which have been disjointed and unpleasant; this is not one of those. But it is clearly starting to get old and deserves an honorable end, so drink up soon.
