On the nose there's wet earth, cherry, a touch of vanilla, soap candy & red currants ~ On the palate it's medium bodied with tight acidity & moderate tannins & flavors of milk chocolate, tart cherry, strawberry & an earthy herbaceousness ~ A bit tight, perhaps a little more time in the bottle would help
12.0% - Clear pale ruby / clean, med to low intensity - redcurrant, muted fruit, tea, dry leaves, orange peel after it got in contact with air / dry, med acidity, light body, low tannin (leaves mouth slightly dry like tea), med- intensity, med to short length but at least, everything is in balance. Nice early drinking burg with some earthy notes (86-87). However, for just a few more $, there are better Villages Burg's available out there - especially for the '09.
