Consumed from a Magnum. Purple in color, ruby swirls. The nose is clean with black cherries and spice. On the palate, this has a soft texture. Black cherry fruit. Slight, slight bitterness to it. It seems advanced considering the format and the age, but that's fine. Drinking well now. While it has some complexity it is broader rather than deep. This is very good for the vintage and should be good for the next ten years. Not sure if there is any upside though.
