Cork in decent shape, color still very intact with very little amber around the edges. Beef broth, blood, a little dustiness, dried cherries, mushrooms. Everything pretty well balanced, got lucky with this bottle.
This was from a Chambers Street offering in late 2013. A really lovely bottle from a great vintage. Tangy, faded red, with a good deal of acidity, perhaps too much, but to me it contributed to the complexity. Ethereal and perfumed. Despite the tanginess, still a supple and smooth finish. A little bit of wild strawberry fruit with a mist of aged balsamic.
