A beauty at its peak of maturity, shouting out its spicy, kinky, kirsch and earthy personality for all to see. Soft and silky, medium bodied, fresh and sweet, this is drinking perfectly with no decanting.
Taste: Medium/full bodied with medium acidity and silky tannins. There is a lot of polish, but with power behind it as well as raspberries, licorice, kirsch, black cherries, black fruits, and leather notes.
Overall: This was a fantastic showing. This had a refined power to it that was beguiling at each turn.
An absolutely perfect wine for a snowy night. This is in a great drinking spot, still showing raspberry and plumy fruit; with pepper, licorice, iodine and iron. Deep, savory and layered, with a lengthy finish. Nicely resolved tannins. While this can probably go a bit longer, it will be hardto resist now.
