Tasted one day after it was opened. Wow….If their weak year wines age like this, I cannot imagine what the great year is like at such age. Far and beyond the pure academic enjoyment. Aromas of fresh mushrooms mix with the finest, softest leather. Taste-wise it surprises by being fresher and showing less of the underbrush than I expected. Blind could probably pass for being around 15 years younger.
