Dark ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of cassis, dried cherry and singed plum, with a smoky overtone and a suggestion of cured tobacco. Lush, sweet and smoky on the palate, offering superripe dark fruit flavors with suggestions of cola, chewing tobacco and mocha. Extremely rich and verging on thick, in the style of this bottling, but showing surprising vivacity, especially at a decade of age. A peppery note adds lift and bite to the long, smoky, gently tannic finish.

We tasted without decanting and drank it throughout a duration of about 6 hours.. A bit boring and light in the beginning w/o decanting. It gradually evolved into a finesse and complex wine with great balance in about two hours. An excellent wine that needs 2 hours of breathing time.
Corked. Second bottle from same distributor
