I see the other notes on being past maturity but I think it is quite the contrary. I purchased the 1991 on auction several months ago and it was amazing - although I would not say this is on its way to being what that was, I think it will be a much better in two to three years.
Red currant and licorice on the nose, this felt tired tonight. I would drink soon. Flavors of blueberry, saddle leather, cracked pepper with a bit of flaccidity from pH that seemed high and bitter but moderate tannin. Drink now!
Currant and smoke in the nose, currant, earth and cracked pepper flavors. Maybe just a hint of TCA that showed up on day 2 after the fruit had faded just a bit. It could be just a bit of old barrel note. Time to pull the bandaid off these bottles, drink NOW.
