Wow! Incredible. Opened, decanted and it was singing and drained quickly. Ruby in color, just a bit of browning on the edges. The nose is ethereal. Cherries, dried cherries, slight tar, dried roses in an intoxicating perfume. On the palate, this is just getting to maturity. A wonderful texture that is velvety yet slick. Each sip makes you want another one. On the palate, this still has light tannins; just enough to grip. Great acidity. Layers of fruit, tar and earth. Long finish. Worked great with food. No hurry as this has a couple of decades left, but no regrets about drinking this now.
