Cork was in perfect condition, so perfect infact that I expected it to have been recorked (I don't know if it has been). The nose was well developed with lots of tertiary scents, raw meat, damped cellar, pencil shavings and new car interior. The fruit was a mix between sour cherry and raspberry candy. On the palate the age was confirmed with a concentrated leather flavor. Tannins still had a bit of grip but mainly the texture was just silky and elegant. The finish was long but thin. I think the wine probably is at its peek soon. It will most likely last a couple of more years, or even improve, but it is not in it for the long run as it missing some tannins, structure and acidity to back it up.
Pop'n'pour. Moden lukt av solbær, cedertre og litt kaffetoner. Solbærduften forsvinner kjapt og går over i kjeller, våt jord og tørket frukt. Smak av mørke bær, vått høstløv, rosin, tobakk og moccabønner samt hint av vanilje. God men moden frukt, middels syre og tannin. God struktur. Bør nok luftes en time, da det siste glasset var best.
Always an outstanding value for the price, and this is no exception; This has an enticing core of plum, tobacco, earth and mint, with fairly soft tannins leading into the finish; Great to drink right now, although not sure it will improve much with additional age

Vinen er mørk rødbrun med langsomme legger. Nese med sopp, plomme og for øvrig mørk frukt. Munn med noe frukt og en del kald kaffegrut. Der er noe godt integrerte tanniner og en lang ettersmak som er preget av kaffe. Utvikler seg lite med luft, så jeg mener at dette er; drikk nå!
