Little staining, moderate plus to elevated concentration. Bright ruby with a garnet rim. Rosemary, clove, thyme, game, leather, and sanguine. Cinnamon & nutmeg, tea leaves, and a tough of mint. Iodine, agave/syrup on the palate. A prolonged sweet and savory finish of elevated acidity and moderate smooth tannins.

Opened in a family dinner celebrating my father reaching the fine age of 70. Decanting was not an option, so I poured carefully to all glasses at one go. And indeed decanting would have been useful, not only for the very heavy sediment but for opening the wine up after such a long slumber in bottle. After a few minutes in the glass, the alcohol (20%) became less dominant and the fruit got somehow fresher, focused. Very smooth, long and satisfying.

Excellent, mature with loads of complexity and depth. Elegance is this wine's best attribute as it cuts a focused line from start to finish, from the nose to the long and fresh finish.

Surprisingly aggressive & tannic given the age. Expected more.

Gorgeous black fruits, layers of complexity and concentration. Could go another decade.
