Monday, May 23, 2005 - Dinner party for 8 at home. This was wonderful. 1 hour decant. Bit tight on opening. Once dinner came around this wine was great. Nice fruity nose with a bit of wood. On the palate just lush cherry flavors and other red fruits. Nice decent finish. This has some life left. The 2000 that we opened afterwards did not have the complexity and seemed unbalanced in comparison. That definitely needs some more time. Glad I tried to "age" some of this. With veal stew, corn, mushrooms. Funnily enough the bit that was left by desert got totally destroyed by the grand marnier in the desert.
