The Little Wooden Guy finds this wine is just tired, beyond its prime.
The color is interesting. It is a little translucent and deep dark red. The nose is very deep and a little raisiny, with dark fruit, marjoram, green olives and bacon fat. There is less fruit on the palate than the nose. The fruits are black, blackberries and plums, but they are subdued. Floral flavors, violets and lavender, join the fruit. Green olives and bacon fat appear on the mid-palate. The finish falls flat.
Some florals remained, but almost no fruit. Very little mid-palate remained. This was clearly wine past its prime.
