Did get the cork out in one piece, sort of. It was tearing apart as I pulled it out, but stayed in one piece and didn't crumble. Creap well past halfway up. The wine was the best bottle I've has, so far, with red and black berries, cherry quickly giving way to dried tobacco, stone, and a whisper of herbs de provence. It improved over the next hour, with soft tannins and a medium finish.

Nose of black and red fruit followed by a hint of eucalyptus. Palate of blackberries, raspberries, and a touch of tobacco with soft tannins, and a bright acidity on the medium finish. This is drinking well now, but has some life left.

Be sure to give this some time to open (1/2 - 1 hr.) and you won't be disappointed. black fruit, dark berries, mocha and tobacco. Tannins are slightly grippy and add to the palate. The medium finish lengthened as the night went on.
