The 2000 Nacional exhibits a blue/purple/black color, but the nose is closed. With aeration (day 2), additional graphite and pungent, spicy creme de cassis characteristics emerge. Structured, muscular, and tannic, it requires 5-10 years of cellaring. Although long and pure, at this stage of development it is not significantly better than the regular bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040.

A very fruity aroma leads to concentrated flavors of raspberry, iron, fig, dark plum, slate and smoke. Refined and unctuous, with a deep well of molten chocolate. Long finish.
