Deep violet with garnet edge. Cassis, coffee, cedar and earth. Rich, almost juicy mouthfeel. A little short. Very competent Bordeaux-style blend, but clearly suffers alongside the Mouton 82, which is an unfair comparison.
Luftet 1 time i karaffel. Duft av solbær, bjørnebær, mørk sjokolade, nytt lær og litt kvae. Smak av solbær, bjørnebær og mokkabønner. Deilig frukt og syre, med velproposjonerte tanniner. Silkemyk i munnen med lang smak. Velintegrert høy alkohol.
TN: Wines from Eastern Europe and Greece: This was easily the red WOTN garnering six first place votes among the red wines. It retails for $60, more than twice any other red, so it was nice to see it finish first. That said, I find no value here and for the money, there are lots of other wines I like better from other places in the world. This is a Bordeaux blend. Purple in color. Tight at first it opens to show an earthy yet fruit filled nose. Black raspberries mostly with some black licorice. Juicy on the palate, it has a bit of complexity and some tannins. Cassis and a bit of anise on the finish. A very good wine.

(Attila Gere Villány Kopár) This is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc, 46% Merlot and just 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented in large oak vessels and aged in new French and Hungarian oak for 16 months. It has a deep colour in the glass, very deep at the core, with a dark claretty rim. A really dense and hot-smoked layer of fruit on the nose, with a slightly violetty, sweet-dried black fruit character. Plenty of substance on the palate, a great pile of fleshy fruit with a good frame to it, but also with pile of structure some of which has a rather dry, wood-tannin feel to it, which goes with the wealth of fresh oak staves also still in evidence here. This is showing a lot of embryonic substance and structure at present, and also a little heat, but some of this is just down to the awkwardness of youth I think. A big tannic finish, and stacks of extract. Some good points here - I like the fruit profile, frame and substance - but it does seem very intense and youthful right now. Give it time.
