Another funky bottle. The nose was closed and very dirty and musty. This did not blow off. It was not corked. The palate was much better with ripe red and black fruit and lovely spice. Still, I am looking for the full experience with this wine.
Sweet fruit and sap on the nose. Sweet dark raisin and light spice on the palate with a somewhat distracting sweetness. Personally I would like a little more earth and acid. Would give this wine a few more years yet.
Popped and poured. Ripe red berry and cherry aromas with enticing baking spice. Lots of power and pleasure throughout. Long and dense. this is charming now with further potential for improvement going forward.
Drinking beautifully! Nice spice and and earth on the nose with black cherries. Long finish that is a little sweet. I think this will continue to age nicely for at least another 10 years. No hurry to drink.
