Bingo. It's drinking time. It's all come together. Dark purple with notes of brick. Lots of mature cassis, glove leather and darker berry fruit. Compact mid pallet with a silky texture and age-appropriate tannin. Great finish as well. This bottle has gotten better with time and can show what it had been hiding all along.
This is fantastic. Blk cherry liqueur and red currant soar on the nose. Palate is super concentrated and the red fruit is enhanced with notes of licorice and menthol. The finish lingers nicely... wow, this is a great wine which will provide pleasure for many years.
