This is still drinking beautifully. Cork broke in half but I was able to get both pieces out intact. Pleasant nose of cherry and plum with a hint of oak. Very smooth mouth feel with soft tannins. Nice finish that left one wanting another sip. If you have this vintage drink it soon as it's beginning to fade.
Opened but not decanted about 4 hours before dinner. Paired with marinated lamb chops. The cork was soft and crumbled. A mature cab which should be opened now if you have any. Soft tannins with notes of cherries, leather and berries. Medium body. 90 points.
Decanted clear with a good amount of dust in the bottle, took 15 minutes to start opening and after 1 hour was intense cab nose with good spice, smooth in the mouth and balanced finish, mellow tannins, enough acidity to support my steak nicely
