This was a surprise in contrast to earlier bottles. Lovely colour. Soft tones of red berries and light earthy nose. On the palate there was a certain freshness. There was lovely balance and ervything was held lightly together. Not long but suffiicient to provide a sense of completeness.
Bottle was drunk at Goto (a wonderful Japanese rstaurant opened by Chef Goto who used to cook for ambassador Kojima till he eas posted to Australia last Sept.). The cork was soft and broke. We had to pushed it in and decanted the botte though a sieve ! It held up well. Bouquest was lovely. Opening up in the glass to a wonderful aroma of dark cherries, a hint of soy, candied red fruits. On the plate it had good balance of acids and fruits.
