This wine is 13 years old and I just found it in my cellar. The cork did not look good and I feared for the worst. In the glass it’s very dark, almost fully opaque but it shows nice legs. The nose is mature- earthy, with mushrooms, forest floor, game and a hint of black cherry reduction. On the palate this is stunning- fully developed with a boatload of tertiary flavors. Umami, dried shiitake, garigue and stewed cherry. This wine is at peak. The midpalate is super smooth- rich fruitcake, secondary flavors and a lithe dose of acidity. The tannins are fully melded and give me a great mouthfeel. The finish is lovely if somewhat curt. Rich fruit reduction, trace tannins and those delicious secondary players we hope for after extended cellaring. 20 plus seconds. I love this wine and am stoked it turned out so nicely. Drink till 2022. 93 points. I paid under $20 back into the day, I doubt you can find any of this 5 star wine these days. Salut….
