This wine is definitely showing its age. Aromas of dark stewed and dried fruit, prune, fig, iodine, leather and baking spice. On the palate there's bitterness, and savoury characteristics like teriyaki. Tannins are still present but smooth out with air. Some alcohol heat. Ok length. A bit past it's prime so drink now. August 2014.
