Solid CdP! I'm sure this has calmed down a bit in the past 8 years as it is velvety on the palate and not as spicy as I was expecting. Decent finish and we'll worth having around for a quiet night with the missus. Cheers!
Mid dark with a bit of aging present. Nose of herbs, parma violets and tar. Tastes medicinal, herby, savoury. Fruit is restrained and sweetness limited to the back end. Fine tannins. Long finish. After 3 hours the finish was tea, herbs, camphour and roses. Delicious.
Nice floral/fruit notes nose and on palate at P&P, even better an hour later w/dinner of my meatloaf and stuffed twice-baked potatoes. Dessert of my dark,dark chocolate brownies an hour later were complimented nicely with the fruitiness of this wine. I waited 1.5 years since my last tasting. Next one will be within less than 6 months as it is in a nice drinking window for my palate.
