Showing some age with garnet color and moderate rim variation. Liquorice and anise aromas. Very complex and changing as it woke up, predominantly plum, tobacco/ashtray, and chocolate. Juicy, long and still quite tannic, this bad boy has lots left, but KC strip and a decanter made it quite delicious now.

Concentrated cassis, cherry, licorice, and dark chocolate on the nose. Good structure and balance that shows it will age nicely. Disappears on the mid-palate though. OK finish. Perhaps this needs some time in the bottle to evolve but overall I was disappointed after such a rich nose. Still a very nice wine.
