Hjalle, ME och SS letar vin (Hemmavid (Umeå, North of Sweden)): Early maturity is here so let's rejoice. This is coming around nicely. Very complex and layered nose: Barnyard, cumin, slight iodine character, brown loam and toffee. In the mouth you get the aromas again, with the addition of maturing fruit. Acids M+, tannins M++. Superbly balanced and long. This is little rustic but not at all disturbingly so. Me like! 5th btl and two to go. Will try really hard to keep the next one for a number of years.
Deep, blackish red. Rich nose with interesting brett and beautiful maturing fruit. A fabulous experience. Still little thin on the mid-palate, but ending with just the greatest combo of sumi ink and camphor. Acids M++ Tannins M++(+) with some harshness/bitter tinge and Body M. This wine is becoming more and more dense, compact and complex. It is approaching its early plateau. This is what a Bordeaux could be like if they tried to copy the Château Musar style. Sinewy structure shining through in a refined way. There is earth and minerality also. After evening kendo practice, with a fairly advanced cheese plate (Swedish place). This is A LOT OF wine with a breathtaking QPR.
