From 375 bottle: Popped an poured first glass, the rest in the decanter over 2 hours. Light crimson colour. Promising nose of leather, pencil shavings and graphite but the palate doesn't hold up to the expectations. The acid was enough to keep some interest, but very short and little to keep my interest. Past it's peak by some way, maybe the half bottle not helping here, though I'm not sure if it ever reached any serious heights.
Deep ruby color with slight signs of bricking. Lots of secondary aromas on the nose like applewood, bacon fat, mushrooms, leather along with some black cherry. Palate is medium bodied and fairly seamless. Lots of tart cherry and leather. High acidity. Well done. This seems to be just past it's peak, but we are drinking this from a half bottle. 750mls should have a few years left.
