Decanted ~ 45 minutes, fine sediment remained in bottle.

Fat, thick, slow legs. Crystal clear in the glass; medium-ruby red colour with a slight bricking.

Huge nose of cherries, earth, strawberries, and garrigue.

Medium-bodied with gobs of strawberries, cherries, and anise. Long finish, ~ 40-50 seconds.

This seems to be at its peak or just slightly past it. Drink now. 87 points (12/27/2003).

Served this with a hazelnut-crusted rack of lamb, roasted Parisian potatoes, and sauteed shitake mushrooms when my Dad was over for dinner. The pairing worked quite well.
