was really concerned about this bottle as it fell off my radar and I was concerned it would be well past its prime, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. Showed extraordinarily well right out of the bottle, and got better with decanting. Don't believe I've ever had this much sediment in a bottle before--almost gel like at the end of the pour. Some fruit has dropped out but leaves a very complex wine that drank much older than it actually is. wish I had several more of these in the cellar.
Nose of raisiny rum cake, menthol, woody. Secondary flavors of smoke and tobacco are there. Shows some complexity of age. However body is thin. Fruit seems to be falling off. Finish is short. Tannins all but dropped out. Seems over the hill.
