    March 2, 2013 - Low neck fill, cork crumbled and needed to filter the wine, pouring off leaving tons of sediment. Garnet color with some bricking on the edge and a nose of mature, complex dark red wine. Immediately on opening I feared this was too far past it's prime as the fruit was much diminished and it had a slight edge that I thought might be the front end of this going bad. It turned out to be a bit of acid that balanced the fruit as it began to open. Black cherries, cola, cassis, tobacco and leather with some spice, barnyard, and some light tannins. Elegant, mature, very much like an older Bordeaux. Drank over 4 hours and it stabilized as a delightful mature and layered wine.
