Tasted On 09/09/2004
Deep purple/red with medium intensity and a slightly faded rim. Medium intense nose, very clean with a steely character. Aromas of leather, pepper, deep plum, cassis, a bit -o- funk, vanilla, and oak. Medium weight on teh palate with w/ a lingering dry finish. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla, berry, with medium to heavy tannin's and a rich and lingering finish. I think this has a way to open up yet! Will try second half of bottle tommorrow.
