This is drinking very well now. Tannins have receded, leaving a cottony finish. Fruit is mature with clear signs of age - acid is poking through. A nice balance of components showing more elegance than the younger wine.
Opened as part of a Buchignani vertical tasting. Dark, brooding fruits, tending toward earth & herbs. Nose of dried cherries, herbs, meat with a touch of baking spice. Flavors of Blackberry, tobacco, tar, leather.
