From a magnum with prime rib and baked potato, color is light purple with a little bricking on the edges, nose is not existent (probably me and my flawed aging senses), on the palate, a sweet attack then some decent layers of fruit, berries and cherries. Should be a bit better but I think age has caught up with it and it was probably better 4-5 years ago. Still the balance and structure make up for some of the fading fruit.
