Wow. Pop and pour. Could smell the nose from 3 feet away. Dark friut, cassis, leather, some forest floor. The palate followed suit with amazing deep dark fruit. A wonderful combination of primary fruit and secondary tobacco and leather. Fully round, supple tannins that softly coat the tongue. Finish lasted about 40 seconds. Drank next to an 02 Staglin, and there was no comparison. The mountain fruit was singing. Thankfully, I have one left. No need to hold, drinking perfectly.
