Bottle taken from my personal cellar, double-decanted and served to guests at the home of Amy Weinberg (her birthday party). The afternoon was warm at this outdoor affair in her backyard, making the serving temperature several degrees higher than what it should have been. Bright disc. Medium garnet robe with orange rim. Clean nose, showing very intense leather, cocoa, clove, vanilla, cherry and mint. Medium bodied on the palate, with melted tannins and similar complex flavors as for the nose. Long, slightly hot finish (likely due to the alcohol from the higher than optimum serving temperature. Overall the wine showed well, but the fruit has definitely faded and will likely be completely gone within the next couple of years.
