Drunk in a tasting comparison with a 2005 Musar. Decanted for an hour. Both good wines, but this was thinner without the flinty edge which is characteristic of Musar. That said, it's still a great wine and represents good value from a second wine.
Non-blind. Had immediately with IRS, Hemmavid. Impression: very good PLUS High strung tonight with tense acids but incredibly delicious. Elegant or thin (depending on your taste) with a good mouth flow. Only btl to be finished tonight. IRS liked very much!
Just a tad lifted red fruit nose with dusty cedar, baking spice, minty herbaceousness and a touch of mushrooms. Medium bodied palate with dusty tannins, juicy acidity and ripe fruit. Face powder, liquorice and medicinal herbs. Good length. Nice stuff.
Last minute choice to go with this 'Moorish' dish, decanted.
The wine looks bright purple with Garnet colored edges. The legs are Med Fast. It smellsa bit like Raisin, and a slight freshness Cool/Menthol. It tastes like Raisin, Cherry, and warming. The body is Medium. The wine has Silky texture. The wine finishes Medium. To be honest the 2nd mouth full was much better than the 1st.
