Tasting Notes:
An absolutely wonderful wine. Young and supple, even at 15, it will have many years to give. 


Ripe fruit, a hint of spice and cassis slowly move to earth, leather and peat.  The wine finishes smooth with nice complexity and well integrated tannin. This is a true winner, possible the Fatguys will add a few to the cellar.
