This is admittedly on the backside of its life but is still very pleasing. Medium-bodied with blackberry and dried dark berry fruit. Nuances of earth, mushroom and leather. Tannins are fully absorbed leaving a smooth, soft, elegant mouthfeel. Medium length finish.
Over the hill a bit. Opened up with air. Brambly, good acidity and little tannin left. Fruit fading a bit.
