bought a case of these. opened up one to see where it was. not doing a full review.

very good wine but still young. however, it is clear that this wine will be quite good with age and I'm very much looking forward to revisiting in 10+ years when the tannin has faded a bit and all the elements are a further integrated.

Medium ruby with a little bit of age on the edges. Light aromas with a little bit of black fruit but actually showing a little more tertiary aromas like leather. Still tight with tannins a bit forward but assume that will diminish with a little more age. Not much fruit flavor or even tertiary flavor. Maybe this is just in a not great period right now and needs some more time.

When comparing the 1996 and the 2005, the 1996 had developed much more tertiary aromas/flavors but still displayed the same amount, maybe more, of primary aromas/flavors like black fruit. And the tannins had also faded. Nine years made a big difference and I found the 1996 to be much more interesting.
