Muted dark berry and leather nose. Blackberry and leather again are prominent in the mouth with soft tannins and above average acidity. Not sure whether this is beginning to fade or a bit dormant before heading into another phase. Medium length smooth finish. Going to wait another 5 years before trying this again.
