Delicious. Perfect bottle. Still lovely and alive. Definitely all secondary layers at this point. Distinctive strong bacon smell on first opening, but with air, it become much more elegant and even a touch floral, while still keeping those meaty notes. More than held its own with a ribeye. Drink now for sure but well stored bottles should be full of life.
A sweet nose with spiced plum and baking spice. Muddled spiced dark fruit on the palate with notes of soy sauce on the finish after some air time. Enjoyable but lacks complexity and does not have enough to offer to challenge the drinker.
Fully resolved tannins. Wished it had a touch more acidity, but the balance is otherwise fine. Soft fruits, soft earthy tones, actually pretty soft overall on the palate. Thought there would be more apparent tertiary or even secondary notes, but they were muted. Very pleasant drinking but wished it was more complex or interesting. Maybe starting to tire out. Have a few more bottles and will be interesting to try those.
