Brought to a restaurant to have with dinner. Poured into a decanted and drank over the course of about two hours. Needs at least an hour to begin to reveal itself. Starts off very tannic with some heat on the finish. Later softens to reveal soft red fruit. Needs at least a 4 hour decant and has the goods to last another 15+ years.
Very good wine with strong aromas of dark fruit, tobacco, and tar. On the palate tobacco, blackberries, licorice with some slight tannins on the long finish. Given the quality, complexity and depth of this wine at this price point it is a good buy.
