Beautiful dark red color with no indication of bricking. Earthy nose. Very smooth on entry. It takes a second as the wine moves back to detect currant/black raspberry flavor, but it is very subdued. While tannin is detectable, the years on this bottle have subdued or resolved most of them. A similar comment can be made about the acid level. Light acid is detectable. Lengthy finish with hints of leather or tobacco.
The nose is earthy, bit of oak, taste was soft fruit with a spicy touch, some black currant.. might be past its prime, but we found it very smooth, no harsh tannins.. very good.. had it with flat iron steak..
