Friday, March 15, 2013 - We had a well decanted yet shut down specimen tonight. Structure was excellent, but the patterns on the tapestries were undiscernible.
On the nose: chocolate, toffee, milk chocolate and dark fruits. Mellow yet M+ size.
In the mouth, only structure and oomph lent themselves to definition: tasty acids M+, elegant tannins M, fresh fruit and very very promising. May not reach the stars, but will be great pleasure always.
More plelasure to be expected from keeping.
Provided by M.E. in a very fine evening in relaxed friendship and nice talks.
Went exceptionally well w salami, hot pepper and garlic pizza. Yay!
