Have a couple of these in my cellar, time to open one and give it a try!

Very aromatic. Nose whaffs dark fruit notes, blackberry seems to dominate.

Do decant this wine for a 1/2 hour or so, a little exposure to air really improved this wine's taste.

Well structured taste. Ripe fruit notes, blackberry and black cherry along with vanilla and cedar. Soft tannins with a nice lip smack'n finish.

Still tasting very good!
