Dark garnet with layered bleeding. Good bouquet with flowers, clay, red currants, plums and earth. Character similar to Pauillac. Silky and dignified on the palate. Still quite grippy. Great fundamentals. Delicious, but I would continue to hold.
Deep ruby with hint of garnet on rim. Intense nose with Bordeaux-style aromas henced with a bit of jammyness and ripe fruits. You don't really notice any big matured aromas or flavours even though this is 17 years old - pretty fresh fellow and will stay at it's peak for a couple of years. Great stuff with entrecote.
Sampled 8/6/11. Perfectly smooth - silk. Clearly and Italian Bordeaux blend with the Merlot showing more than the Cab Sauv. The earthiness (terrior) elements are distinctive for this wine and I could see how some people would love them and others not like them. I found like them interesting but not my first choice. A wine that is clearly at its peak. Very little sediment. Probably another 2-4 years in top form for well stored bottles.
