Earthy, leather, on the nose; cassis, dark berries and cherry dominate the palate. I'm glad I decided to open this bottle over this holiday season. I expect this wine would only decline from this point forward. Drink now and enjoy.
Drank side-by-side w/Rousseau Clos de Beze. Good, but pales in comparison. Fairly significant bricking at this point. Interesting nose dominated by meat and truffle oil notes. Good acidity and a fair bit of tension overall on the palate. Fading fruit not replaced with enough secondary components to raise it up a notch or two, however. A little bit of heat comes through as well. Now + 3-5 years seems about right for this.
