Baco Noir and Tomatoes

Tasting a '12 Chateau Lorane Baco Noir. Nose , smoky, dried prune, dark fruit, leather.
Soft mouthfeel, tannins now completely balanced and none of the somewhat harsh bite and toothiness

 are here. Long notes of fresh blackberry and very subtle cumin. 
Trying it with heirloom tomatoes with fresh buffalo mozzarella, reduced balsamic, fig balsamic, oil, and finished with Jacobson's sea salt.

As it opened it became even softer and more aromatic. I am very glad I have a few bottles left and plan on keeping them down for a few more years.
