gotta admit was very worried when i received this wine as it had 3 different sticker prices on it from over the years But this is excellent cloudy but still fresh and spicy soft tannins with red cherry and wonderful earth quite long
Smoke, smokish and sweet vanilla. After two three deep long sniffs, you can finally smell the very nice grapejuice that is covered by the oak. There is sweet red berries, early autumn forest and some leather.
Deep intense flavours comes around when finished with the smoked vanilla-three...It has a quite velvety mouthfeeling and a quite tight and structured acidity that makes it very nice with the food.
But you need to be a forestfriend to look forward to the next bottle...
here is where the evil of over oaked rears its ugly head- there's plenty of "stuff" here- dense ripe fruits, good acidity, but it is all muted by a rounded, "false" edge. not awful, but an underperformer by a long shot.
