nose - very complex and rich nose. reminds me of an aged tusdcan wine. 'asian spicebox', dirt, dried plum, iodine mouth - very mellow ripe fruit, extraordinary balance, good acidity, some spiciness, and still withconisderable structural tannins. shockingly good. i need to pay more attention to this producer.
This 99 is past its peak. I touch flabby and lost some fruit. I know this bottle of wine so it's hard to rate it low knowing how good it was a few years ago. However, the truth is that it just isn't drinking so well anymore. It is (was) a nice example of a bordeaux blend with good body some nice dark fruits. But now the nose is pretty thin as is the taste.
