Rich with sweet notes of maderization this seems fairly evolved with linger red fruit tones and some light mineral and sand accents. In the mouth this is soft and rich with zesty acids and the remains of a once fairly aggressive structure lurking deep within the still rich berry fruit with notes of dried fruits, dates and figs, on the back end. Past peak but still a big, rich mouthful of wine. 91pts
