Upon opening very strong notes of dark fruit: cherry, blackberry, blueberry notes, hint of vanilla. First glass after 30 minutes of decanting, still strong notes of dark fruit on the nose, very smooth. After 1.5 hours of decanting it opened up, dark fruit still lingered on the nose, but licorice and tobacco flavors came through. No noticeable tannins, smooth finish, dark fruit flavors permeated the wine overall.
Not as good as it was a year and half ago, the last time I had a bottle, but still very good, dark fruit on the nose, the palate was blueberry, red meat and cigar box, the finish was long but did not bring out any taste of menthol as in the past.
