Tasting Notes

Tasting note: It had been 20 years since this wine last crossed my palate and it's still cruising along effortlessly. Still deep ruby with only mild bricking at the rim. The earthy and overtly spiced aromas have now gone fully secondary though there is no sous-bois in evidence. The full-bodied, rich and distinctly powerful flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration before culminating in a long if slightly tangy finish that stops short of dryness. For my taste this has reached its peak but given how relatively youthful the wine is, it should continue to hold if not necessarily improve for years to come.
