This wine has been troublesome since release with what appears to be trapped CO2. I don't think it is refermentation as there are not really any off odors that usually accompanies. It was interesting to try at 19 years from vintage. This bottle was opened and allowed to breathe for an hour or so prior to serving. Deep garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black raspberries, very earthy, slightly sweaty, some roasted meats. Full bodied. On the palate, there is some carbonation. Not frothy but a line of bubbles in the glass. The wine is drinkable and pretty good but compared to other vintages, slightly off. Certainly worth drinking though. Not sure where this goes from here. Probably better with some food. Lamb stew would be a nice choice. 85% Syrah, 12% Grenache, and 3% Mourvedre. 15.8% abv.
