A brilliant ruby robe, with just a touch of thinning at the edges, the nose features rich, candied cherry, bitter dark chocolate, underbrush and a smidgen of oak spices. Glass-decanted in Vinum XL pinot noir glasses 30 minutes before pairing with pan-fried and oven-finished Atlantic salmon with spicy tomato vinaigrette, this was very dry and a good, if not excellent, match for the entree. We love what Athena and Stuart are doing, and this is still drinking excellently!
This wine has an orange, garnet rim. While very mature, it has nice bramble nose. Very interesting. On the palate, it has notes of dark fruits like blackberries and macerated cherries along with vanilla and cinnamon. Now the acidity is in balance. It has gained considerable complexity over the years.
