Friday, April 12, 2013 - Popped and poured. Expansive bouquet of dark compote and a tinge of alcohol. Sweet, round entry. Enveloping warmth on the midpalate with cherries and sous bois to the fore and a medium length final. This is very enjoyable stuff - accessible, moderately complex and quite well balanced. Alcohol is perceptible and throws out the balance a little but this is great value.
I think this has at least another 5 years ahead of it.
