This wine is most definitely NOT past its prime! Open and let it breath for at least 3 hours and your taste buds are in for a delectable treat. Deep purple color with strong legs paint your pallet with hints of dark berries, cherry, toffee, fennel, licorice, dark chocolate, oak ..... very dynamic taking you on a journey as it opens over time. The finish is smooth and dry. Well balanced and intriguing.
Popped and poured. A fair amount of oak and ripe red and blueberries on the nose with a bit of spice. Sweet black cherry on the palate. Great balance. But the oak stood out a bit too much for me, likely because my palatte had changed since I purchased this 4 years ago.
