Bottle vertical for 15 hours. Opened 9am. Poured tasting glass to follow during the day. Slow’ox for 9 hours. Surprised how dark the color was. Medium dark brick red color, edge orange’ish. Beautiful clear color at start, some sediment in the last glass. Stood for 15min to blow off before first sip of tasting glass. Nose of mature red fruit, cigars, leather, very nice. Palate was mature cherries, mature red fruit, leather, cigarbox, very nice balance and integration. Few tanins are still present. Smooth palate and mouth feel. Very nice and pleasant. Drank over 4 hours. Not done at all. Fantastic.
