Very dense palate, rich and thick but some medicinal notes in the nose throw off the balance. Weirdely enough on the cork the vontage was noted as 1998. ( plus there was also john kongsgaard's name on it)
Made by John Kongsgaard - both names on cork. Big and powerful with a very sweet core but not that much sweet fruit on the nose or the palate. A bit of tar, chocolate and black currants on the after taste.
the 98 was so bad, we popped the 99 to try and get a different take. this vintage didn't give off the overtly offensive nose, but it was still a very disappointing wine. holy batshit, what's up with this producer? the wines weren't corked or heat damaged. the 98 plain sucked, and the 99 was just awful. no fruit, no structure, no nothing. and to think i bought the 01's. i have NEVER been more disappointed by a wine.
