The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are slow, long and thin. Moderate sediment present in bottle, this was decanted off. It smells like raisin, blackberry, raspberry and chocolate. It tastes like red cherry, mineral, leather (saddle), mild oak, sweet tomato and tobacco. The body is medium/full. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has mild acidity and is mildly tannic. Decanted and tasted over 4.5 hours, was at its best after 3 hours and didn't seem to evolve much after this. An excellent wine!
