Deep ruby, nose of red berries and cherries, hint of spice. More spicy in mouth, floral and fruit takes a back seat, tannin a little bit sharp and grippy. Long lasting aroma of spice and fruit which is adorable. Complex but would hope for more finesse.
Another Final Dinner at Charlie Trotter's with "Guests" Henri Jayer, Meo-Camuzet and Rouget (Charlie Trotter's - Chicago IL): In a great Brulees flight. Decanted approx 30 minutes before serving, I was then able to hold and revisit this over the next 3+ hours. It's been a few years since I've had this wine and it certainly didn't disappoint. Great baking spice aromas to start with red and black fruit. Slightly more restrained on palate to start but more fruit intensity and concentration emerging with more air. Moderate length and nuance (compared to the Meo 93 for example), but this was the easiest wine in the flight to enjoy all through the evening.
