  • The wine started out brown and almost caramel colored but worked back to brick during a long 5 hour decant. There is heavy sediment layer inside the bottle (like fruit rollup). It smells like forest floor, mushroom, lightly smoked pork belly, green and black tea, tobacco, small game, soy sauce and clove. On the pallet, there's still some cherries with orange peel, mushroom, forest floor, light clove, tea leaves, bell pepper and some game. The body is light very light and has a satin-like texture. The wine finishes short medium.

    I like it and feel like it will hold the current (albeit very mature) profile for some time. Maybe a good wine to serve at a 50th birthday next year.

  • Decanted at cellar temp for 5 hours and room temp for 2 hours. The sediment has become a solid thin sheet on the inside of the bottle and came out like a pieces of thin fruit rollup when I rinsed the bottle. Cork was OK but used prongs to ease it out.

    Wine was very light colored and still balanced between maroon and Brick - what little amber there was seemed to fade.

    Very nice nose of mushroom, earth, old attic and some residual tart fruit. Palate was a mix of earth, mushroom, tart cherry, iodine, dust and some other unknown flavors.

    most excellent experience when decanted properly.

  • There’s just a bit of animale funk to the nose. It is a deep, ferrous and powerful wine with plenty of tar and meat. The finish is chewy and length is good.

  • Italians (mostly) for the Holidays; 12/24/2016-12/25/2016 (Our Home): The cork was popped 6 hours prior to serving and allowed to slow-ox in the cellar. Decanted right before serving. It worked well. Ruby in color with slight purple swirls. On the nose, there is cherries, roses, hot asphalt and slight anise. Pretty. On the palate, still vibrant cherry fruit. Also some dried cherries and a dried floral note. Light but persistent tannins. Layers of complexity. Good acidity. Nice finish. Most likely past prime but really drinking quite nicely and maturely. It held the night in the decanter without changing much at all.
