Still drinks very well given the price, probably 4 euros when I bought it. Stored for ten years. Still a bit of acidity, medium finish, tannins are well digested with a medium body, well balanced. Nose is not so clean.
A dark ruby color starting to show a little brick at the edge. Leather, tobacco, dried herbs, blackberries on the nose. Medium body with softened, but noticable tannins and good acidity. Very lively on the palate with mixed berries, spicy herbs, and earthy elements on the palate. A lingering finish with sweet berries and spics. Very nice for a lower end CDR with some age.
Blend: unknown Color: purple with a little brown Aroma: earthy, cherry Taste: lots of cherry Finish: long Notes: drinking better than the 1997; still has a lot of fruit; some left in decanter after three days was better than the first night
