Opened a couple hours before consuming. Fair amount of sediment. Dark color, nice blackberry and cassis on the nose. This wine is still young, however it is drinking well at this point. A hint of cedar on the palate with the dark fruit and spice. Fairly long finish with balanced tannins. It paired well with pan seared filet mignon finished in the oven served with a wine reduction sauce that included shallots and crimini mushrooms.
This was the first of three bottles purchased in 2007.
