Last tasted about 2 and a half years ago. Still much the same as when last tasted: "Aromas of raspberry, blackberry, sweet cassis, some blueberry, roasted game meat, herbs, and vanillin. Similar flavors, with the addition of pepper and dark chocolate. Big, powerful, rich, with intense fruit. Viscous in the mouth." Tannins are now integrated into the wine and the wine is drinking at its apogee. Again, a long and spicy finish. I feel the wine has a year or two left for enjoyment.

I bought a case of this wine on futures. It has a spritz to it as if it's gone through secondary fermentation in bottle.

There was a distinct "hiss" when my 2 pronged cork puller or "butlers thief" penetrated past the bottom of the cork (almost like a champagne. I'm watching small bubbles form on the rim of wine as it sits in the glass. It's actually drinkable, unlike the last bottle, but definitely had some secondary fermentation going on so agree with your comment.
