Ripe, plummy fruit. Damp earth notes.

Held up beautifully with rich loamy wood and hints of chocolate and dark plum.

Pretty closed early but opening up after 15-20 minutes. The dry tannins have gone away - very elegant wine to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

Paired with A5 Wagyu Striploin roast. Wine is very balanced and has a lot of life left.

Opened first bottle of mixed case to celebrate anniversary for 3rd decade (cheated a bit as this was 29 years with wonderful bride Kim. Lots of dark fruit with just a touch of tannic finish. We visited Al on our honeymoon to pass muster before he sold a case futures. Quite a character! btw, Groth & Girard were Cans for first 2 decades.
