A great bottle, perhaps just past peak, but still putting out the dark fruit. Gravel and grass on the nose. Vacuum sealed half the bottle and drank again 5 days later. Noticeably inkier on second pour, with notes of asphalt dominating the fruit.
Popped and poured. Appears to be a synthetic cork. Several years in and this wine is still very fresh, with lots of fruit. The color is darker and there was a bunch of setiment to work around, but the wine didn't appear to have lost any of its delicious fruit. I don't see this going downhill in the near term, but no need to hold it either.
