decanted 3-4 hrs. Very impressive crimson color for its age -- cork completely intact. very hot with lots of earth on the nose with notes of bramblefruit, cocoa, licorice, violets and plums. Silky, concentrated cherry, chocolate and more earth on that palette with only faint traces of tannin lingering. Beautiful, but short-lived finish of stonefruit and sublte notes of tobacco and oak. While it may not be a really complex wine, the balance and texture was truly fantastic.
