    March 20, 2012 - Dark crimson red.

    A first strong pepper nose. Then it quickly evolves into some sweater smells like a good old rum. This is rich and it evolves.

    It tannins are good. Since it is quite young, it is still astringent. It is lightly spicy, the palate is sweet, it is pretty long in mouth; it flows smoothly. Pretty well balanced.

    It is pretty good to drink, but it will certainly evolves even more in the future with some new tertiary smells and tastes.

    -> 90 - 94 [ **** ] (Brilliant)
