70% opaque. Pale rim. A hint of something odd on the nose, sulphur? Some fruit, but a bit of fire on the palate, and it seemed to deteriorate and take on a somewhat citrus tang over the course of the evening. Possibly not a great example of this wine.

3rd lightest. As much as I had enjoyed chugging my way through over 30 bottles of this over nearly 10 years, I’m glad I finished my last a few years back going by this bottle. A pruney decaying nose and unattractively tertiary notes. Similar palate with no structure to speak of. Past best.

75% opacity, dull dark red. Jammy stewy nose, prunes, tobacco. sweet with some coffee bitterness alongside, tannins along the palate, finish fades away.
