This is amazing. Old world stank dominates the nose. My wife characterized this wine as thick and she's not wrong about that, but not throwing sediment. Bricking apparent when pouring but not so much in the glass. More barnyard on the palate but also some red berry fruit (my wife insists it's more like cherry) and wild spice. Earth and tobacco. The finish is long. A little better with food than on it's own when the barnyard is a little too much perhaps?
Not sure if wine that different from last time or just warmer this time of year and after sitting in decanter whether alcohol just more present....big fruity wine, tad "hot" for me which I attribute to vintage and higher room temp...sweet strawberry fruit still in there...drink these cool
Mature but in an excellent place and very well balanced. Light ruby color, still some earthiness along with sweet red slightly candied Grenache that is not hot or pruney..very pretty wine and especially considering the vintage
