The cork broke apart on extraction with no ensuing issues.

Medium red color with bricking on the edges. The nose had prominent secondary flavors followed by fruit.

The initial taste showed some acidity with gripping tannins. As it had more air the fruit became prominent with few secondary flavors. And the grilled ribeyes handled the acidity and tannins.

A very good wine with a few years left before any significant fall off. But no need to wait.
