This one had gotten lost in the cellar and I wondered how it held up. Quite well I would say. Past prime, but not by that much. Deep garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries, dried flowers, spice and some char. Medium bodied. Nice balance. Good acidity. On the palate, this is certainly drinking well. Some depth. Flavors of cherries, black cherries with some char. Long finish. This is better with a touch of food, but very good. Fully mature. Drink up if you have any but based on this bottle, it should go another five to ten. This would be great with pasta with a creamy mushroom sauce.
