I mentioned a couple of weeks ago how I had scored a couple of bottles of this wine, and tonight I invited my brother and his wife over for a ravioli dinner to put the wine to good use.
Boy, that was good! More like a PN than a PS. Some tannin, some pepper, smooth and fully integrated. Still opaque purple, only slight shading toward garnet. Smooth entry, totally unified all the way through the moutn. Long finish. A little dust around the edge, mainly after a couple of hours, but if you didn't know, you wouldn't guess the age. Magnificent! One of the best bottles (of any wine) I have ever had.
There's another one waiting....
