Great finish. Decant for 20 minutes. Getting a little "raisin-like". Don't hold much longer.

Disappointing. Oaky and high alcohol. Needs more time. The only thing that stood out was the astonishing amount of alcohol.

Unbelievable after 19 years. Can't say it lost a bit of character or integrity. Color was beautiful, no brown at all. Very earthy, tobacco, not much fruit showing.
