Great mature nose but a bit too thinned out and oaky on the palate. Still some tannin and some interesting flavours. A bit over the hill. Didn't quite have the fruit for the long haul. Still, worth a try for the curious. You won't hate it. A good wine, I enjoyed drinking it, but i think I'll take the others back. I can do better for almost $30.
