(November 30, 2015) ... 13 years has not done justice to this wine, the fruit aromas are on the cooked and stewed side, though dried would also be a descriptor here. On the palate there's a warming sensation on the first few sips (attributed to the 14.5% alcohol), but it does smooth out and gives one a taste of mocha, leather, licorice and prune. Drinkable but not overly enjoyable; if I hadn't been curious as to where it was headed I would have stopped tasting it hours before.
