Decanted at 4 pm and drunk from 7-8pm. Dark Translucent ruby, little to no sign of bricking, youthful looking. Nose is elegant, generous and layered with the expected cherry, some grilled meat, earthy mineralogy and a touch of vanilla. Very voluptuous on the tongue rich and chewy yet bright and lively. Nice flavors of red fruit/cherry, some menthol, smokey, earthy minerals and a long aftertaste. Great with grilled, spicy, dry rubbed salmon. Plenty of life ahead if this bottle is representative. Purchased from HDH in Chicago 2+ years ago, shipped halfway across the country and stored in my cellar since. Well balanced and not overdone in any dimension. Lovely!
