With an hour of air this wine put on some weight and was ready for drinking. Faded brick red with a 3mm+ meniscus. Big bouquet of dried roses with a touch of tar and a noticeable undercurrent of yellow curry powder. Smooth, medium-light palate of dried cherry, mushroom, and a touch of earth followed by what I can only describe as spicy but resolved tannins. Long, well balanced finish with good acidity.
Despite the fact it was past peak, this was a fun wine to drink from vintage that wasn't supposed to be a long ager.
Pre-HDR offline at Alloro: Earthy, mature nose. Touch of lavender and violets. Medium-bodied with some dark strawberry fruit fading into vinosity and earthiness. Acidity late. Seemed to gain earthy character with time.
