Opened 30-45 minutes or so, at which point one detects plum, red fruit, herbs, vanilla and licorice. Leather and tobacco notes emerge with additional time in the glass. Red fruit, plum and herb tones on the palate, maybe just a bit thin on the back end preventing a higher score but this is still damn fine juice. Drink now-2017.
Dinner at Anvil with Allred. Color has gone towards brick red/orange showing its age. Notes of mushroom, tobacco, leather and other tertiary notes. Nose had a bordeaux-lite profile almost. Clearly on the downside of hill, but still a lovely bottle.
