I popped one of the last few bottles of this the other night, and it rocked! Purple ruby color. On the nose, developed, medium+ intensity, leather, tobacco, cocoa, dried herbs, definite mineral, some oak spices, and some earth too. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, medium body, good acidity, still some tannic structure left, with a beautiful balance of fruit, earth, oak, and other flavors, with a very nice finish. I knew this would go the distance, and it has!
