Mature color, with very slight bricking at the rim, opaque throughout. Nose was slightly muted, with aromas of cedar and plum. Resolved tannins and tart cherry, cedar and smoke notes on the palate. Some vegetal flavors on the back end, and a slightly hollow mid-palate, but overall a fine example of a tough vintage. Plenty of time left to enjoy this wine.
Bright sweet strawberry & cherry fruit, med+ acid and very smooth tannins. I would never have guessed this wine was 10 years old, as the color was still intense and the fruit so bright. Easily has another 10 years to go, although its drinking deliciously now.
