Bought at Dave's Italian Kitchen in Evanston, IL for $48. BTW, the wine list has some nice affordable treats on it like this wine, recommend checking it out if you are in the area. Some nice mocha/cocoa, blueberry with nice balance. Good length still. Good with lamb chops.
Very pleasing nose of ink, fennel, black currant and red pastille fruits, a touch of rare meat and wood ash. Medium-bodied with flavors very similar to the nose - licorice, bright red fruit, smoked meat with added notes of mocha and a little green olive. An energetic finish brimming with zesty berry, stone dust and salty sea breeze. A lively wine full of interesting complexities and very consistent with a recent bottle. My only concern is a finish that borders on tart.
Fabulous nose of ink, blue fruits, lilac and a little caramel chocolate. Full, creamy on the palate but there is also a fresh breeziness through the finish. Should continue to improve for the next 3-5 years (though the slight cloudiness is a little concerning). A hair better then the 2001 Copain C & C tasted alongside.
