    Color: Black, with some browning on the edges

    Nose: A little plummy, but then the dark black fruit comes in, with a hint of integrated oak.

    Palate: Same as nose, but filled with beautiful structure of silky tannins that have softened and integrated. Wonderful.

    Color: Had another bottle, this time it was decanted. Still has that inkiness and browning.

    Nose: OMG, this truly opened up with decanting. Much more blackberry and blueberry coming out, with that same backbone of integrated oak. Fantastic!

    Palate: This was still so juicy and wonderful for an 8 year-old Pet. Wow, I loved the structure that came along with it. Tannins are round and nicely-aged, the acidity is there from this appellation and the fruit is just amazing and so mouth-watering. I had the '95 of this wine a few months back and it was on its way out, but this is perfect right now!
