Nose: quite nice with a mix of fruit and secondary motes. Taste: strawberry and raspberry-fruit with a slight peppery note and nice secondary notes. The acidity is still more prominent compared to my last tasting of this wine in last april. This wine in a way has became more interesting with keeping, but I still liked it mostly when it was young. 87-88.
Kept under condition 2 (see my profile) since early 2013. Same notes as on 03-11-13 with the exception, that this bottle showed less prominent acidity, the tannins were resolved and there were still more mature notes. I liked it more in an earlier stage, but the quality still was there. Less good at the second day. 87-88.
Taste: a little smoky in the attack, with strawberry and maybe raspberry, forest floor and slightly peppery. Compared to my lasting tasting of this wine (23-06-13), the quite prominent acidity struck me. Still a bit tannic, but also a bit more mature. At the second day a more fruity nose, and with a little more fruit in the taste, less prominent acidity and more mature notes better than the first one. 87-88.
