A nice wine, showing restrained dried fruits and excellent secondary development. A good wine that I wouldn't keep much longer.

Drink 'em if you got em, seems to be on the downside but still a very enjoyable pour. Elegant and light red, use as you would a red burgundy in pairing.

Fading, but still very pretty and elegant.

Dirt floor nose, dried cranberry taste, soft and supple. Tannins are gone but flavor is still strong. Just about perfect for our anniversary dinner of Salmon.
