Garnet color on edges. Nose of leather dark berries. Full-bodied with currants, earth. Lingering earthy finish. This wine could have used even more time in the bottle, but it's components were harmonious.
This wine fooled everyone at our "Bordeaux on a Budget" Tasting. It started out lean, austere and rather dull, but after 60 minutes of aeration in a wide decanter, came alive and began to really sing. Earthy, bordeaux character, balanced fruit and acidity with a long finish. An excellent food wine.
