The Eatery: double decanted back into bottle: lovely ruby with lots of garnet bricking; macerated cherry, date, warm leather, sweet pot-pouri, forest floor and old cigar box--beautiful nose although quite subtle; mouth has some weight still to it, with very balanced acid (not sour) and still grippy light chalky tannins; more body and extract than the Lanessan and Duhart; Superb, great age on this, and clearly shows that right bank kicked left bank's ass in this match. Drinking the last few drops the morning after it's so good!
This was a lovely wine with a good bit of beefy char flavors along with a delicious spiciness. Medium-bodied, balanced and complex with notes of bitter chocolate and cigar box on the complex finish. Nicely done.
