Inky purple/black in color, totally opaque. Still extremely youthful and fresh. Aromas and flavors suggestive of blueberry, black raspberry, and dark currants. Overtones of baking spices,vanilla, and dried flowers. Rich, chewy, and virile, still has some tannic bite to it. Nice grip in the mouth and finish. I wish I had another bottle or two of this in the cellar - it's going nowhere but up. - HK 2018-08-13
