Surprised not being a reserve wine, this stood up that long, but that's what proper cellaring will do! Interesting time as it's just entering its second phase where the fruit begins to fade to earthy, leathery character. The gamey, dirty nature is setting in, but I was shocked at how strong and ripe the fruit remains on the nose and palate! Nose of dried, stewed prunes with some bright red berries remaining and dried flower petals. Deep core of cassis and dark berries and black currant over relaxed tannins and dried floral bouquet.
Another bottle for our older wines tasting and it's still awesome! I can't believe a non-reserve wine like this has stood up so well. It's right between the first and second phase of its life and it's just simply impressive, delicious and complex. - Tasted at Schreiner's Winers: The Aging Process- Library/Older Wines 5/21/10
