We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months. Nose has dry autumn leaves, ripe black cherry, dried tart cherry and a hint of coffee grounds. Palate has ripe black cherry, dried blackberry, moist soil, mild tannins on the medium finish. Decanted ~1.5 hours, heavy sediment in the bottle. This bottle is in an interesting spot, either an off bottle or much too over the hill. We drank the 2003 Termes last night (the younger sibling) and it was much more enjoyable. Will save some for tomorrow to check for further development. We still have some chances at a good bottle of Numanthia, so hopefully the remaining bottles are a little more exciting. 24 Hour Update: A different wine today, ripe black cherry, ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, light baking spice, apparently it just needed loads of air after its very long slumber. Score update from 90 to 92 today, good juice.

This was fucking huge! So much tannin left for 14+ years old. Feels like this will be ready in 25+ years.
