Drank stand alone after dinner. I usually drink my Clio young so this was new territory for me...not having any experience with aged mourvedre. The fruit has definitely taken a step back so it's tough to judge this objectively because I was expecting fruit-driven Clio with a tinge of cab complexity on it and this isn't that anymore. But if you have experience with and desire for older Clio...it's there now.
oak has faded a bit on this and there's some interesting charcoal and graphite that has replaced it. still a lot of fruit on the palate and a long finish. heat seems more muted than in the past, but appears about 10 sec into the finish. wine has developed nicely and still has time to go.
