  • Tasty tasty tasty. Opens up immediately on vinturiing. Second day it's still good, possibly better. Light nose, but strong palate. Good acidity, biting red and dark red fruits, with a little of that blackness on the palate you get from some southern Italian wines too. good long finish also. Not much noticeable in wood tannins at first compared with the 02 so it seems lighter, a little more subtle, but with less heft. Perhaps on the second day there's a hint of some lingering tannins on the late palate, which is quite nice. Ideally I'd have the tannin levels somewhere between the two vintages.
    Not the world's most complex wine, but it has a lot off zip and flavour on the palate. Very good value still when on offer at a fiver.
