This was definitely starting to turn. The initial taste had something there showing that it was decent at one point in its past. The 2008 was much more enjoyable. This was the oldest wine I have ever tasted, so it was a nice experience either way. If you are still holding one of these, drink ASAP.
Dark purple red. Deep somewhat backward bouquet with a lot of ripe black fruits, oak and sweetness. In the taste ther is a lot of good tannin, good acidity, a lot of black berry fruit and good oak. A firm, powerful and full bodied wine with also some sweetness. Long creamy and fruity aftertaste. Beautiful wine which has a good balance between power and refinement. Now already nice, but has a future of at least 3 – 5 years.
