Monday, November 19, 2012 - The nose starts by indicating a wine that is perhaps a little bit off (boiled).
It shows boiled dark plum fruit, cabbage, brown sugar, bonfire and an excess of alcohol.
The palate is very compact but still shows some power and strength.
Flavors are: boiled plum, vanilla, hint of cabbage, creamy chocolate and cocoa powder.
It also has an extreme acidity and tannin structure and does still seems dense.
Perhaps an off bottle. I had certainly expected more from this wine.
